Albizzia julibrissin (Mimosa)

The genus is named after the Italian able Filippo degli Albizzi, who introduced it to Europe in the mid-18th century. Julibrissin is a corruption of the Persian word gul-i abrisham: gul meaning �flower� and abrisham meaning �silk�. The silky mimosa�s flowers are harvested as they open and are carminative, sedative, and help with poor memory.
