Common Name, Genus, Spread, Common Season(s) of Flowering, Method of Introduction, Part of US it Affects, Methods of Control

[hide]While I'm not 100% certain, it could be...

Tamarix Gallica, "salt cedar", Flowers in Winter, Brought over from the middle-east, Effects southwestern United States, applying herbicide to the stump of tree. (This is probably way off if it's the wrong organism.)|[/hide]

NOTE: Can you please let me know how to hide responses, I've yet to figure it out.
Nope, you were right :) The name is misleading, as the picture had flowers, yet it's called Salt Cedar.

Can we keep this limited to the National Invasive Species list? I know the rules say identify regional species, but I don't think any of us want to learn every regional invasive species...

I apologize- I wasn't aware we were going off of a list as of now. And, after reading that question I see how it doesn't make any sense. Thanks for making me aware.
