Albizia julibrissin rosea (Pink silk tree) - Plant
Albizias, often known as Rose Silk Trees, originated in central and eastern Asia. They feature feathery fern-like leaves, which may be green or bronze, often taking on attractive autumn colours. The rose flowers are produced over the summer, usually feathered or fluffy, and very pretty. Their dramatic appearance makes them useful as feature trees, and they are also very suitable for training as informal fans across a south-facing wall. Many Albizias are able to fix nitrogen into the soil, and can be grown on relatively poor soils as long as they are free-draining.
