This rare beauty is Albizia julibrissin 'Ombrella' seen flowering at the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens. Popular in the med, in the last few summers in the UK it has also flowered reliably.

Could they be kept in a conservatory during winter, I'd love one but I'm surrounded by fields so get a lot of wind 😊

@angiecrazycatlady They are deciduous, so yes they would be happy in a conservatory during winter, then put back out in the beginning of May. Or, plant it next to a sunny wall in May it will then have the whole summer to establish and the protection of the wall will ensure longevity along with periodic watering in very dry spells.
