62. Kalkora Mimosa

This is a medium sized Chinese tree related to the common Mimosa (Albizzia julibrissin). This species differs in having rougher bark, showy white flowers, and coarser foliage. Although it seems well adapted to the southern U.S. it is rarely seen in cultivation. Unlike the common Mimosa it has not widely escaped into the wild, and is perhaps less susceptible to the blight which frequently kills the common mimosa.
