What Tree is This?

I was working at a customer's house in Bellevue,Washington and this tree is the neighbor's.The height is about thirty feet and is quite beautiful.
These two pictures are the best ones,with the closeup being a little blurry.Hopefully the leaves will be a clue and the flowers are somewhat soft and feathery. Thanks,Brady

looks like a mimosa

RE: What Tree is This?

Albizia jullibrissin, although probable spelled wrong.;
One summer the one down the road must have had 20+ hummingbirds around it.

RE: What Tree is This?

Invasive in the southeastern US. From Asia originally.

RE: What Tree is This?

Not invasive here. Gets broader than tall in old age. Susceptible to ice storms. Nice scent. "Silk tree". Fast grower. The tree in the picture might be of a newer cultivar, as the blossoms are very reddish.

That's the one,thanks.The bumblebees were sure liking the flowers. Brady
