CaudexCan be used for bonsaiSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunModerate waterPink flowersIrritatingDeciduousSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Growing to a height of about 4-5ft, this succulent plant is a member of the same family as Plumeria. Their swollen, often twisted trunks, are pale gray. The leaves are glossy and club-shaped. The flowers appear almost continuously, are trumpet-shaped, and range from white and bright pink to crimson red. They emit a highly toxic sap, which in some places is used as a poison for arrows.

Albizia lebbeck, Mimosa lebbeck, Womans tongue, Siris-tree, Rain tree, East Indian walnut, Kokko, Soros-tree, Raom tree

Click to see full-size image Albizia lebbeck, Mimosa lebbeck
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Mimosoideae
Womans tongue, Siris-tree, Rain tree, East Indian walnut, Kokko, Soros-tree, Raom tree
Origin: India, Burma and the Andaman Island
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersYellow/orange flowersDeciduousAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

Albizia lebbeck, Mimosa lebbeck is a fast-growing tree, that is susceptible to wind damage. A moderate to large, deciduous tree can grow up to 100 feet high in rain forests. The tree develops a straight trunk when it is grown in dense forests, but is spreading and low branching in the open. Unless trimmed frequently, the trees will annually produce an abundance of seed from papery pods about 8" long and 1" wide (author). Common names such as "woman's tongue" and "rattle pod" derive from the noise of pods shaking in the wind. The foliage is pale green when young and gray-green at maturity. Flowers are cream colored, hemispheric pom-poms. Seeds germinate well without scarification.

The tree is used as a folk remedy for many ailments. Another common use is as an avenue tree, and sometimes it is used to shade coffee and tea. Saponins and tannins in the bark can be used for making soap and in tanning, respectively. Bee keepers like the species for the light-colored honey its nectar provides, and the tree hosts the lac insect.
