- Dark Colored Foliage
- Weeping Tree Form
- Unique Pink Flowers
But, mimosa trees aren’t new, you say. That’s true, but there has never been an albizia quite like this one. For starters the foliage in not the bright green that you’re expecting. It is a rich dark purple – so dark it is almost black. It covers the tree with fern-like leaves in an opulent display from spring to first frost. The dark leaves are the perfect backdrop for the delicate, almost ethereal, cherry-cordial-pink flowers that explode over the tree in the summer.
As if that weren’t enough, this is a weeping form of mimosa, so the tree grows into a lovely fountain form with deeply arching branches. Completely eye-catching and unique for a weeping tree, your friends will be begging to know where you got it!
It’s a perfect small tree for a petite garden, a great focal point for an exotic border or a wonderful conversation starter in a large container by the patio or front door.
