Albizia julibrissin

Not just another alcoholic drink for brunch, this kind of Mimosa is a large deciduous shrub or small tree with a flat crown and fern-like, light-to-medium green, 12-18' fronds with double rows of oblong leaflets.

Best of all, in the heat of summer (when anything outrageous can happen) it produces terminal 3-6" clusters of fuzzy, spherical, pink or tannish-pink flower heads. These alone make this extraordinary Southern ornamental worth putting right in the middle of the front yard.

Re-seeds itself.    Attracts: Hummingbirds       * Deer Resistant
