Leaf Color and Leaf Form

The Albizia julibrissin 'Summer Chocolate,' also known as the brown-red Persian Silk Tree, is a remarkable exotic presence with red/purple leaves.

The leaf consists of two doubly pinnate leaves, to which hundreds of small leaflets are attached. These fold towards each other at night. This characteristic gives this species the name Sleep Tree.



At a young age, this species blooms abundantly with beautiful, fluffy, pink flowers. The flowering period is July/August.


Bees and Butterflies

The sweet-scented flowers are a good source of nectar for honeybees and butterflies.


Crown Shape

The crown shape of this species is relatively broad and parasol-shaped in later years.


Winter Hardiness and Location

The species is less winter-hardy than the green variants and requires a sheltered location.
