Buy Albizia julibrissin Chocolate Fountain ('Ncaj1') Chocolate Fountain silk tree: Spectacular when in bloom

This tree is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection)

    The finely divided feathery foliage appears each spring in a rich chocolate-purple burst, but as it matures it changes to greyish-green, which provides an unusual two-tone effect. Then in late summer, fluffy looking, rich pink flowers appear, adding yet another season of interest. It's an unusual, eye-catching and exotic-looking small tree.

  • Garden care: Avoid excessive winter wet and protect from hard frosts in colder areas. Add a top-dressing of a multi-purpose fertiliser around the base of the plant in late spring. No routine pruning is required, just remove any dead, damaged or crossing branches in late autumn or winter when they are fully dormant.
