Albizia julibrissin `Rosea` is a colorful landscape tree, with deep-pink, pin-cushion-like flowers. It loves summer heat, yet is relatively hardy. It has a pretty, multi-trunked tree in natural form. Deciduous. Full sun. Fast grower to 30 feet tall and wide. Albizia julibrissin 'Umbrella' is similar, but grows twice as wide as it does high, eventually developing a 40' canopy. This flat-topped canopy is what gives it an umbrella like appearance.
