Albizia

Description: Albizia julibrissin 'Rosea' is a small very hardy, broadly spreading tree that can often flat topped.

A magnificent variety that will add an exotic feel to any garden.

History: Introduced by Ernest Wilson from the Korean peninsula in 1918. Received an Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society.

Albizia Growing Tips: Grow best in warm, sheltered sites on well drained and even impoverished soils. Easy to train as an informal fan across a south-facing wall or fence. Very suitable for milder parts of the UK but must be protected from frost.
