Product Information

If you're watching the calories, then here's a guilt-free chocolatey treat! Boasting an irresistible combination of dark burgundy chocolate coloured, finely dissected foliage and feathery creamy flowers in mid to late summer, the Chocolate Tree is a plant that will really get tongues wagging.

The Persian Silk Tree is a deciduous shrub that can easily be kept to a more compact height in smaller gardens by occasional pruning. Perfect in patio pots, beds, borders, grown as an eye-catching, free-standing specimen or even displayed in a cool conservatory, this stunning variety of Cocolate Persian Silk Tree is also very tough, easily coping with winter temperatures down to -5°C.

Supplied as an established plant in a 19cm pot, ready for immediate planting.

Top Tips

 For the best leaf colour, grow in full sun, as it's almost like a sun tan!

Care Information

  • Best planted in well-drained soil that is neutral to slightly alkaline. Select a warm, sheltered position with moderate to full sun exposure.
  • Ideal for poor or slightly fertile soil, so don't add extra organinc matter or fertiliser when planting.
  • Mulching is recommended over winter but remove it in summer as Albizia prefers direct sunlight onto the area above its roots which will promote flowering.
  • Keep the area surrounding your tree free from weeds and grass for at least 3 years.
  • Pruning is possible in early spring after all frosts to remove any branches that are dead or damaged. Do not cut deeper than about a third of previous year’s growth, otherwise it will not flower that season.
