I have a seedling in my garden for almost a year now. It has suffered a little damage at the top 8 cm due to two extremely cold weeks last februari where temperatures plummeted to -19 C at night and didn't rise above freezing, but recovered well during mid-spring. Some native shrubs and trees also suffered last winter where I live.
Should become very cold-hardy as they age. The most cold tolerant species of Albizia.

Very nice foliage. Larger, rounder leaflets than A. julibrissin that start to fall off late, sometimes stay on until late november.
