Albizia julibrissin

Plant Description
Deciduous tree with delicate and finely textured leaves and drooping form. Feathery pink blooms during the summer but mostly considered a trash tree that is not used much due to it's short life span and shallow root system, but has a sentimental, southern feel to many. Enjoy them in someone else's yard if you see one and refrain from planting them in yours. Also has 'bean-like' see pod that drops.
