Chocolate Fountain is an unusual form of the Silk Tree. While most varieties have light green leaves Chocolate Fountain has large bronze fern-like leaves, which cascade down with a weeping effect - which is indeed reminiscent of a fountain of chocolate.
Chocolate Fountain is also more dwarfing than most Silk Trees, and not likely to reach more than 5m in the longer term in UK conditions. It grows with a spreading weeping habit.
It can also be grown in a large container or planter (which will have a further dwarfing effect on it).
The candy-floss pink flowers appear in the height of summer.
