Albizia Julibrissin Leaf Yellowing

Posted by swct (My Page) on

My Albizia Julibrissin (Mimosa Tree) is about 5 years old and has grown vigorously in my CT yard. Over the past 2 summers, I have noticed leaf yellowing on the outer leaves. I had very little flowering this summer relative to years past. Could someone please identify was is affecting this tree? Are there any remedies? Thanks very much.

RE: Albizia Julibrissin Leaf Yellowing

Yellowing or stunting, followed by early defoliation, are typically symptoms of Fusarium wilt, common to silk trees. Unfortunately, the disease is eventually fatal and there is nothing you can do with regards to treatment.

Since this tree is a listed invasive species for your area, removal should be considered a good thing and an opportunity to replant with a more desirable tree :-)

Hello. I was going to send a private message but I don't see a way to do that. I'm very curious to know what became of your tree. I hope it survived or at least went out in a blaze of flowering glory.
