''Albizia julibrissin'' is a species of tree in the family Fabaceae, native to southwestern and eastern Asia.

The genus is named after the Italian nobleman Filippo degli Albizzi, who introduced it to Europe in the mid-18th century, and it is sometimes incorrectly spelled ''Albizzia''. The specific epithet ''julibrissin'' is a corruption of the Persian word ''gul-i abrisham'' which means "silk flower" .
