'SUMMER CHOCOLATE' MIMOSA

Albizia julibrissin 'Summer Chocolate'

Aka Purple-Leaf Mimosa


Stunning Dark Chocolate Colored Foliage

Fragrant Blooms, pink to white

Bee, Butterfly and Hummingbird Plant

20' Tree at maturity and as wide

USDA zones 6b through 10b

Full Sun


Truly a beautiful addition to any sunny garden! This plant has it all!

The leaves are the darkest of the darkest purple and the dark color is sustained with age of the leaf as well as the heat of the sun. The blooms are a soft pink to white, highly fragrant blooms, and a nectar plant for bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. This is a particular favorite of the Monarch Butterfly so it is a favorite of ours as well!

At maturity, the Summer Chocolate is a 20' tree hardy in zones 6b through 10b. It should be sited in full sun and once established, requires only moderate watering.

Like all mimosas, it is hardy and durable in the garden.

Unlike other mimosas, this one does not re-seed rampantly! Seeds will sprout, but do not come true to the Chocolate Mimosa.
