ALWAYS THE LAST ONE

My Albizzia tree is always the last one to get new leafs in Spring, at the moment it is still completely bare  when all my other tree’s have fresh new leafs, but you can see the buds.

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.
