Albizia julibrissin Rosea


Albizia julibrissin Rosea, commonly known as the Pink Silk Tree or Persian Silk Tree, is a striking deciduous tree known for its feathery, fern-like leaves and spectacular, fragrant pink flowers that appear in mid to late summer. The flowers, with their long, silky stamens, create a delicate, fluffy appearance and attract bees, butterflies, and other pollinators.

The Pink Silk Tree is perfect for use as a specimen tree, in mixed borders, or in tropical-themed gardens. Its exotic look and elegant form add a touch of the tropics to any garden. It is also a wonderful choice for creating a shaded seating area due to its broad, spreading canopy.

This tree fits well in Mediterranean, tropical, and contemporary garden styles. Its unique appearance and fragrant flowers make it a standout feature in any landscape.

Albizia julibrissin Rosea thrives in full sun and prefers well-drained soil. It is quite tolerant of drought once established and can adapt to various soil types, including sandy and loamy soils.

When planting, space the Pink Silk Tree approximately 4-5 metres apart to allow for its mature spread. This tree typically reaches a height of 6-9 metres with a spread of 5-7 metres.
