So we arrive in the middle of July, another magnificent month which sees plants and animals of all shape and size come into their own. This month, itís time to settle down and enjoy the garden, and admire all of the wildlife that comes with it.
"Many thanks for the delivetry of our plant - a very nice specimen in perfect condition. We are so please with it, we shall be ordering another one today.." Thank you. M Brown
Makes a tree upto 30 metres tall in native land of China in this country expext a much smaller tree. Similiar to the better known Albizia julibrissin with fine feathery foliage and requiring a similiar sheltered spot to avcheive success
An absolute favourite of mine, 'The Silk Tree' in this form the fascinating silky ball like flowers are a delightful bright pink. Even without the flowers the mimosa like foliage would win a place with me in full sun.
Although Rouge Selection is not a cultivar name accepted by the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature we grow this as we believe it to be a good selected strain of Abizia julibrissin Rosea with extra deep rose pink flowers which make a stunning site during summer.
This lovely form of Albizia julibrissin (The Silk Tree) with a rather dubious name, actually perfectly reflects the lovely fine feathery dark chocolate coloured foliage which combined with the fluffy pale pink flowers heads.
