Mock Orange Plant

A tree with many names, Albizia julibrissin is commonly called the ''Silk Tree' or 'Mimosa Tree'.This is a deciduous tree originally from Japan and Asia.

The green feathery or ferny foliage is attractive, and long silky flower stamens in creamy white to pinks like little 'pom poms' in summer make this a real feature tree. Small growing they make as excellent as a shade tree, small street tree or screen tree.
