Common name: Silk tree, mimosa
Albizia julibrissin is a deciduous tree native to Asia. It has small leaves similar to those of a mimosa. Its pink, exploding-star-like flowers cover the tree in mid-summer. We have a couple of the species, in addition to two cultivars, A. julibrissin 'Red Silk' (dark pink flowers) and A. julibrissin 'Summer Chocolate' (dark purple foliage).
