Mimosa (Albizia julibrissin), potted tree, Organic
Family: Legume (Fabaceae)
Hardy to Zones 6 to 9
(Silk Tree, Persian Silk Tree, Collective Happiness Bark, He-huan-pin) Native to Asia and especially the Himalayas, the silk tree is soft and comely on the landscape with the characteristic flattened branches and long-lasting, frilly, oversize flowers. Traditional usage: sedative and tonic, antidepressant, intestinal worms, subcutaneous lesions. The wood is dense and strong. Plant prefers sun and moist but well-drained soil, but will withstand drought and high winds and is quite resilient. The tree also is quite comely if left in a pot, but in that case the tree should be moved to a larger pot after the first year. In large pots, these are elegant.
