With Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit this rare tree variety is very much desired by gardeners wishing to add a garden tree to their outdoor space that gives dependable and beautiful flowers.

Your Albizia plant on arrival:

You receive your Albizia plant, delivered to your door in a 3 litre pot filled with rich moist compost. The stems may have been pruned to grow well and healthily as the plant goes from our nursery to your door.

Your 3 litre pot is wrapped in polythene to encourage humidity and maintain moist soil. You can keep your plant in its pot until you have time to plant it in your garden. Plant on a clear, dry rain. We recommend that you give your plant a thorough water after planting.
