Flowering Trees

Albizia julibrissin 'Chocolate Fountain'

Weeping Chocolate Mimosa
A stunning deciduous small tree, grown for its weeping form and striking chocolate colored fern like foliage. Pink flower puffs appear in summer adding to this plant's exotic appeal. Fast growing, but plants can get winter dieback in the colder zones. Where plants are not reliably hardy, it can be grown as a striking container specimen, and wintered over in a garage or barn once it becomes dormant. This small tree or large shrub can grow to 15-25' tall and wide in open ground, but can be pruned hard to work in smaller spaces. Average water needs. Shipping 18-24" plants in 1 gallon pots.
