Discover the beautiful and useful Albizia chinensis, also known as Chinese Albizia. This distinctive species of legume is native to South and Southeast Asia, stretching across regions from India to China and Indonesia. Introduced to Europe in the 18th century by Italian nobleman Filippo degli Albizzi, the tree is often also referred to by the occasionally misspelled name, Albizzia.
Albizia chinensis stands as a majestic semievergreen or evergreen tree, reaching soaring heights of up to 100 ft and trunk diameters up to 3-6 ft. The tree blossoms in resplendent displays of yellow flowers consolidated on stalked heads that culminate into an eye-catching panicle. When the season turns, the tree yields indehiscent pods as fruits.
But this tree isn’t just beautiful—it’s practical too. Albizia chinensis is a favorite browse tree for goats, serving as a valuable source of nutrition for livestock. It also shines as an ornamental tree and provides ample shade in plantations, making it a great candidate for various types of landscaping projects.
Beyond its physical presence, Albizia chinensis works below the surface to contribute positively to the environment. The tree harbors symbiotic bacteria on its roots, which help to elevate nitrogen levels in the soil, promoting healthier plant growth overall. Experience the winsome beauty and practical benefits of Albizia chinensis today.
