Albizia, Mimosa, Silk tree—Albizia spp.
Family Fabaceae (Pea family)
Albizia spp. are deciduous and semievergreen trees. Trees have dark green or yellowish-green fernlike leaves and produce puffy pink, green, or yellow flowers.
Optimum conditions for growth
Albizia trees make good patio trees and do well in areas with full sun or partial shade. Some species grown on the coast need little to no water. Other species growing in warmer climates will grow quickly with regular watering. If not watered, they will grow slowly and turn yellow.
