Albizia julibrissin
Common Name: Silk Tree Family: Fabaceae (The Legume Family)

Albizia julibrissin
Zoom In Photo:

This beautiful small tree has luxuriant feathery foliage topped for 2-3 months in summer with masses of fuzzy pink spheres. It is one of the few flowering trees that bloom in the summer and thus extremely useful. Overall this is a great subtropical contribution to the garden. The wood of this tree is not particularly strong, so plant where it will be protected from our winter wind storms.
