Albizia (Summer Chocolate) 3L Pot 60cm Tall
Specification: Supplied as a pair of approx. 50cm tall standard plants in 15cm pots.
If you're watching the calories, then here's a guilt-free chocolatey treat.
Boasting an irresistible combination of dark copper coloured, finely dissected foliage and feathery cream and purple flowers in mid to late summer, Summer Chocolate' is a plant that will really get tongues wagging.
A rare and spectacular specimen tree, it has the most amazing burgundy purple/chocolate brown fern-like leaves. The colour alone makes it a unique plant, but it then produces the most glamorous-looking fluffy pink flowers in a late-summer spectacular display.
With the potential to eventually grow up to 6m tall, this deciduous tree, or large shrub, can easily be kept at a more compact height in smaller gardens by occasional pruning.
Perfect in patio pots, beds, borders, grown as an eye-catching free-standing specimen or even displayed in a cool conservatory, this stunning variety of Persian silk tree is also very tough, easily coping with winter temperatures down to -5C.
