Albizia julibrissin 'Summer Chocolate' (silk tree) is an exciting addition to the shrub portfolio, bearing deep chocolate-red ferny foliage and powder puff-pink flowers in late summer. A fast-growing variety with a wide arching habit.

Medium-sized to large borderline frost hardy deciduous shrub. Plant in well-drained soil in a sunny sheltered position. Avoid overly rich soils which encourage too much soft growth. Tolerant of chalky soils and drought tolerant once established. Only fully hardy in the mildest spots so best grown in a container and overwintered somewhere frost free in colder areas.

British nursery grown.
