Albizia amara is a mid-sized, deciduous tree which resembles acacia without the thorns. The bark of the tree is grey in colour and is grainy and scaly. The leaves consist of up to 15 pairs of side stalks and the leaflets are tiny and can consist of about 15–35 pairs. The flowers are whitish-yellow powder puffs with long stamens and golden pollen. The pods are flat and are about 20 cm long. The leaves thin out during February–March and are renewed in April. The flowers are present throughout May and the fruits ripen during October and November. It is a host plant for Achaea janata. A. amara is intolerant of shade, and resistant to drought. In Africa it grows mainly in sandy woodlands.
