|I purchased a summer chocolate mimosa tree and it came with two tags. One says that it will grow 15 feet tall and the other says 40 feet tall. I am trying to select a location to plant this tree and the size will make a difference. Can you help me? Thanx

|Your Summer Chocolate Mimosa tree (Albizia julibrissin 'Summer Chocolate' ) will grow about 20' tall and 15' wide. It will be vase-shaped with a domed crown. The leaves emerge green, then become dark red and by summer turn reddish-bronze or brown. The flowers are pinkish and the tree will grow in full sun or in part shade. Hope this information helps you choose just the right spot for your new tree.
