Albizia Chocolate Fountain, Silk Tree
With lacy chocolatey eggplant colored leaves, deliciously sweet flowers and a weeping habit, Chocoloate Fountain Silk Tree, Albizia stuns in the garden. Long arching stems with fern like foliage creates a showy curtain. In summer fragrant pink puffy flowers bloom, attracting butterflies and other pollinators. An easy going tree, Chocolate Fountain is tough, trouble-free and drought resistant once established. Slowly grows to 15-20′ tall, making it a perfect size to be used as a foundation planting or as a focal point in a garden.
Plant Chocolate Fountain Albizia in full sun. Amend soil with compost and add a starter fertilizer like Biotone Starter Plus when planting. Water regularly through the first 3 years to encourage a healthy root system. Drought tolerant once established.
