CARE INFORMATION

Top Tips

 For the best leaf colour, grow in full sun, as it's almost like a sun tan!

Care Guide

  • Best planted in well-drained soil that is neutral to slightly alkaline. Select a warm, sheltered position with moderate to full sun exposure.
  • Ideal for poor or slightly fertile soil, so don't add extra organinc matter or fertiliser when planting.
  • Mulching is recommended over winter but remove it in summer as Albizia prefers direct sunlight onto the area above its roots which will promote flowering.
  • Keep the area surrounding your tree free from weeds and grass for at least 3 years.
  • Pruning is possible in early spring after all frosts to remove any branches that are dead or damaged. Do not cut deeper than about a third of previous year’s growth, otherwise it will not flower that season.
