Albizia Merlot Majik is a beautiful small tree with luxuriant deep merlot-purple foliage that holds its colour better than 'Summer Chocolate' even deepening through summer. It is topped for 2-3 months in summer with masses of fuzzy pink spheres. It is one of the few flowering trees that bloom in the summer and thus extremely useful. Overall this is a great subtropical contribution to the garden. The wood of this tree is not particularly strong, so plant where it will be protected from our winter wind storms.
