Albizia julibrissin 'Ombrella' is a compact example of this species, noted for its exotic feathered leaves and colourful candy floss pink blossom, which is on show throughout the summer (July, August & September)

As the name suggests, Ombrella will eventually grow into an attractive spreading tree with an umbrella-shaped canopy.

Albizias are essentially a tropical species, but Ombrella is one of the most cold-hardy. Nevertheless as with all Albizias, it should be planted in a sheltered position, in full sun.

It is smaller than most Albizias, and should not get much larger than 3m or so in the longer term.

Albizias do best in well-drained soil, and need little or no feeding - just regular watering.

Pruning is not necessary, but if you wish you can prune after flowering.

The seed pods are poisonous.
