How to grow

Evy's Pride should be grown in a sheltered spot in full sun in order to get the best flower and leaf colour. It will grow in most soils.

It is easy to train as an informal fan across a large south-facing fence or wall.

Silk Trees (Albizias) originated in warmer regions of central and east Asia, but Evy's Pride is hardier than most forms and should be suitable for a sheltered location in most of the milder areas of the UK - but be sure to protect from frost.
