Albizia distachya

Plume Albizia

Plume Albizia (Albizia disachya) is a perennial tree shrub native to Australia. A member of the pea family, it is a tropical plant that grows with a bushy form, eventually maturing to an erect tree up to 30 feet tall. The leaves are deeply divided and fernlike, complementing the pale yellow, bottlebrush flowers that appear in spring. A. disachya grows best in full sun and well-drained, rich, dry soil. The showy flowers will attract birds, and it will spread quickly by seed, becoming invasive in some areas.
