A unique form of the beloved Mimosa, our Chocolate Fountain Silk Tree boasts a small, compact footprint, but is big on beauty, contrast and interest. Dark chocolatey-purple foliage is made up of small oval leaves along graceful weeping branches, giving it an exotic tropical appearance. During the day, the leaves have a glossy, silky appearance; at night, leaves fold inward. Delicate, fluffy pink flowers appear in summer, giving the tree a completely different look. Fast-growing and carefree, it makes a great privacy screen, defining areas of the landscape or hiding obtrusive structures. Drought tolerant. Prefers well-drained soil.
