Can anyone identify this tree for me please, I want one?

Hello can anyone help identify this tree (in the UK) please? It has smallish pink coloured flowers in the summer months, which appear to have gone now we are in October.

The tree has very dark rich brown branches and very light fluffy foliage that blows in the wind, almost willow like.

You are very welcome! Here in the US and in Australia it's an invasive species. I couldn't find any info on it being invasive in the UK so you might want to do a search on it.
