Albizia julibrissin 'Rosea'

Local name: Persian Silk Tree or Pink Silk Tree

Tree or shrub that provides every garden with an exotic look. This exotic plant can even be planted in Holland, under the condition that the plant receives a sheltered habitat (preferably by buildings or under the protection of evergreen shrubs). Even so the in the first few years the plant will mostly suffer from frost damage in the top, as the plant ages she will become stronger and gradually not be affected by the frost.
The ornamental part of Albizia's is definitely the fine tuned leaves that have some what of a resemblance with Robinia leaves. As soon as dusk breaks, the small leaves fold together as if to sleep and awaken during dawn, by unfolding again. The flowers are round fluffy balls and bright pink. The variety 'Rosea' grows more shrub-like and as a multi-trunk.
