Hello Woody Plant Lovers!

Here's a great one for you that I couldn't live without in my own garden: Albizia julibrissin or silk tree is a gorgeous hardy tree in Vancouver that leafs out in June and then flowers for all of July and August with gorgeous pink powder puffs sitting atop the branches. It is one of the few trees that bloom in summer in Vancouver. It is medium-sized so will fit most yards. Below I've included some pics of it being used as a street tree in Madrid from my recent trip there.

We still have some nice plants left. Along with a few thousand other lovelies. Come down and see them. The nursery is looking great right now.

Cheers, Gary and the Phoenicians
