ONE OF MY FAVORITE GARDEN TREES

On one of our vacations in Spain I came across a beautiful tree with pink fluffy flowers, it was love at first sight. So I asked someone the name of this tree and I was told  it was a silk tree. I looked it up on the net and found the latin name of the tree : Albizia Julibrissin or silk tree or pink silk tree, named after an Italian nobleman called Filippo degli Albizzi. And I found out it was winterhardy enough for where I live.

I found a gardencenter not far from where I live that had them for sale and for about 10 years or so one is living in my garden and it gives me joy all summer long.
