The Albizia is named after the Italian Filippo degli Albizzi, who introduced the Albizia into Europe in the 18th century.
Alibizia julibrissin Ombrella, or also known as Boubri, is a Persian silk tree that grows more compact with wide branches. This exotic tree grows abundantly with beautiful pink/red flowers. The small feathery leaves 'close' in the evening. It grows in an umbrella-like shape.
Boubri is the most hardy variety of Albzia after Albizia Coreana!
