It was a bit of a rash decision that we made to acquire these seeds but one that I don’t think we’re going to regret. Albizia julibrissin is essentially a tree and not a tiny one either, although saying that they can be kept as a shrub and accommodated in all but very small gardens. And it’s stunning, if you want something out of the ordinary then look no further than this. The flower heads on Albizia julibrissin are quite extraordinary with long prominent stamens giving them a delicate fluffiness. A real stand out specimen plant.
They’re a hardy plant too, which is a bonus. Not least because of the size but because normally plants with this exotic appearance are too tender for the UK. Have some fun and bring the tropics home.
