Albizia julibrissin 'Summer Chocolate'

Summer Chocolate Silk Tree or Mimosa has fernlike feathery leaves that emerge bronzy-green and change to a sweet, unusual burgundy-chocolate brown in summer. The leaves close at night - a 'sleeping tree" - and during heavy rain. Pink and white flowers in small clusters, resembling powder puffs, create a beautiful contrast. Makes a good container tree with some pruning..
