Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
ALBIZIA julibrissin 'Flame'
Flame Silktree, Persian Silktree, Pink Siris, Silky Mimosa
A favorite of hummingbirds, silk tree is a multi-stemmed, spreading deciduous tree native from Iran to Japan. Its cultivar 'Flame' bears fragrant, fluffy, rose-pink flowerheads in summer and tan seed pods in fall. The ferny light green leaves emerge in late spring, and fold at night.
Silk tree thrives in most well-drained soils and flowers best in full sun. Its dome-like canopy is good for shading patios. It often self-sows prolifically.
