Description

The Persian Silk Tree, or Albizia julibrissin, is famed for its graceful, fern-like leaves and fragrant, fluffy pink flowers resembling delicate silk threads. As a medium-sized deciduous tree, it brings a touch of the exotic to gardens, earning its place as a centerpiece or shade tree. The feathery flowers not only attract admirers but also pollinators, making it a lively hub of garden activity during the blooming season.

When planting the Persian Silk Tree, it favours a spot with full sun to light shade. While tolerant of various soil types, when in sandy or less fertile soils, enriching with well-composted organic matter proves beneficial. Regular watering is key during its initial years and in warmer months, reducing the frequency in cooler times. For a richer bloom, a balanced, slow-release fertiliser applied at the onset of spring will keep it at its best. Whether in pots or the ground, this tree remains a testament to nature's elegance.
