Illustrative example of a pot-grown tree of this variety as supplied.
(Approx. girth: 6/8).
Trees should reach their mature height after about 10 or more years.
Leaves may not be present during winter, and we may prune some shoots to fit the delivery carton. Size may vary during the season and between batches.
The container (if supplied) is only used for transporting the tree, which should then be planted out in the garden or in a much larger patio planter (not all species are suitable for patio planting).
Fill in the details below and we will let you know when Shidare silk tree is back in stock.
Like all Albizias, Shidare is not particularly cold-hardy and needs to be protected from frost. It does best when to be planted in a sheltered area in full sun, in well-drained soil.
It grows with a wide spreading habit, with the long bi-pinnate leaves cascading down attractively.
