In a Nutshell:

* Halimodendron is a monotypic genus of legume containing the single species Halimodendron halodendron , which is known by several common names, including common salt tree and Russian salt tree . It is native to Russia and southern Asia, but it can be found on other continents where it is an introduced species.
* This is a deciduous spiny shrub sprawling to a few meters in maximum width and up to three meters tall. Stems branch from the base and bear clusters of about four leaflets on sharp spurs. The ends of branches narrow to spines.
* The plant has a deep and wide root system, with the lateral roots sending up new shoots. In this manner the plant forms extensive thickets.
* It is tolerant of saline soils. more...
* Planted as a wind shelter in Canada.
* Succeeds in most fertile soils but they must be perfectly drained and the plant requires a very sunny position. Very intolerant of winter wet, especially when grown on its own roots. It can be grafted onto Caragana or Laburnum species. Plants are well adapted to maritime situations, growing well on alkaline, sandy and saline soils[
* Pre-soak the seed for 12 hours in warm water and then sow in spring in a greenhouse. Use a very well drained compost and be very careful not to overwater, the seedlings are very susceptible to a wet soil. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the greenhouse for at least their first winter. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts. more...

Wiki description:

Halimodendron is a monotypic genus of legume containing the single species Halimodendron halodendron , which is known by several common names, including common salt tree and Russian salt tree . It is native to Russia and southern Asia, but it can be found on other continents where it is an introduced species , and one that is often a noxious weed . This is a deciduous spiny shrub sprawling to a few meters in maximum width and up to three meters tall. Stems branch from the base and bear clusters of about four leaflets on sharp spurs. The ends of branches narrow to spines. Flowers also appear at the ends of spurs in clusters of two to four pink pealike blossoms each one to two centimeters wide. The fruit is a black woody inflated pod about 2 centimeters long containing legume seeds. The plant has a deep and wide root system, with the lateral roots sending up new shoots. In this manner the plant forms extensive thickets. When introduced to an area of suitable climate, such as California where it is a known weed, it can invade cultivated land and spread relatively quickly. It is tolerant of saline soils.
