Anyone have any idea what it is?

Silk tree (Albizia julibrissin): This can eventually be a tree 40 feet
high with a branch spread of 80 feet. This is a tropical or (at best) a
subtropical, damaged by frosts.

It might instead be a plume albizia (A. distachya), which is even more
tropical. This one grows to about 20 feet.
