Looking for a tree

I'm looking for a tree in Second Life, and I'm having some difficulty, because while in the US, where I learned about it, it's called a "mimosa tree", it's not really a mimosa... and SL advertisements don't use Linnean names, alas.

What I want is Albizia julibrissin, a tree that flowers with countless little pink puffballs that smell heavenly. (Yes, I know SL doesn't have smell-o-vision yet--is there a JIRA entry for it? If I find the tree, though, I'll go looking for the essential oil and take a whiff while I stand under the virtual tree.)

If you know of such a tree available in Second Life, please let me know. Thanks.

Look for Persian Silk Tree or Pink Siris.

That's my favorite tree, grows fast too.
