hello welcome to GOY.
yes you can grow it in the north east. the only one i have seen is a pale pink flowered one. i think that is the species one. i dont know if there any other new varieties. some one else might know.

Welcome to GoY
Tamarisk also known as Tamarix~
There are about 50 species of shrub or small tree it likes a sunny spot and will thrive on any soil except shallow chalk. The most common form is Pink cascade. You should have no trouble growing this plant in your area. It 's a good plant for coastal areas to Good Luck :0)
