Sizing guide
A small delightful deciduous tree now available from online plants.  Albizia has soft fern like leaves and flowers arranged like fluffy pink tassels in Summer. Great for small gardens. Grows to 5-7mt tall. Mostly used in parks and gardens as a feature or specimen tree.
Albizia julibrissin 'Rosea', commonly known as the Silk Tree, can be grown in Melbourne, Brisbane, and Sydney. Choose a sunny spot with well-draining soil. Water regularly, especially during dry spells, but avoid waterlogging.
The Silk Tree is tolerant of a range of soil types. Prune lightly in late winter to maintain its shape. The Silk Tree produces beautiful pink, fluffy flowers in summer, adding a tropical touch to the garden. It is relatively low-maintenance once established, making it a popular choice for Australian gardens.
It grows best in full sun or part shade in fairly fertile, rich loam or garden soil. Fine, feathery foliage provides nice dappled shade in summer. Butterfly attracting.
Mulching will help keep Albizia healthy, as will feeding twice per year with a complete plant food and liquid fertilizer. For further inquiries please use our free garden design service or email:
