Fast growing, vase shaped ornamental with exotic finely cut, fern-like leaves. Fluffy, pink flowers that look like powder puffs, cover the tree for the majority of late summer. The flowers are fragrant and will attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. One of the interesting features of this tree is that its leaves will fold up at night and when it is raining, and opening back up when the sun comes out again.
