I know the feeling. I have 18 year old Plumeria in a pot. Its about a meter tall and bit wider. In a warmer climate it would be a tree by now.

I saw this huge Mimosa the other day.

Do any UK gardeners get this to flower outdoors here? I've had one for a few years. It was very slow to start but is now getting a bit more height. I have it against a south wall, but wonder if I can ever expect flowers here, or maybe it just needs to be much more mature first?

No need to worry, Pete!

In your area of the UK you have one of the most favourable climates for getting Albizia into flower. South wall makes sense though, to let the wood ripen better, seems to be the bigger issue of the two.

Just be patient.

My own plant is no more (funghi), but I' ll try again, till I will succed. There are far too many big and nice specimen around, to refuse growing it.

Had one planted here for 20 years and it flowers prolifically ever year. No need for a wall in this corner of England, either. Mine does seem very prone to die-back, however, and is getting rather sparse. Plus it is always the last tree in the garden to leaf out and one of the first to shed in autumn - a very short season of interest. Then again when it flowers it is easy to forgive it. If I were to start again I would look for Albizia coreana which I think is more attractive in leaf.

Die-back, sparse growth and late into leaf!? Seems yours has caught the funghi, too, Paul!

That's how it started with mine. :(

There was an Albizia variety called something like 'Summer Chocolate' that was in all the garden centres a few years back. I haven't seen it lately though. I didn't try it, as I wasn't keen on the foliage colour.

Lovely tree. You see them growing wild here in Japan a lot. Very few people seem to use them in the garden though...

This year I have plants available from Azerbaijan; the most Western population occurs here.
