Its leaves slowly close during the night and during periods of rain, the leaflets bowing downwards, thus its modern Persian name shabkhosb meaning "night sleeper". The Albizia Julibrissin is widely planted as an ornamental plant in parks and gardens. Grown for its fine leaf texture, flowers and attractive horizontal canopy.

    Our tree saplings in 9cm pots (1Year+)


    • All trees in 9cm pots are at least a year old from seed. Germinated last year during spring and stratified the winter prior.
    • Moved into their own 9cm pots after the first few weeks in seed trays.

    • We continue to look after them for another year until the following spring to ensure their survival through their most vulnerable stage in life and on route to becoming established trees.

    • All trees can be pot grown, ground grown or trained for bonsai.

    • We recommend pot slipping the trees into much larger containers allowing the roots room, which will greatly increase their growth rate.
