Fast growing, flowering tree of tropical characteristics that is anything but common.
If you are in the market for a beautiful tropical-looking tree, you won’t find a better tree at a better price than this right now.
Even though Mimosa’s look tropical they are hardy to at least zone 6. They thrive in heat (but a freeze won’t kill them), laugh at humidity and sail through drought.
The head-turning flowers are like silk tassels. These are conversation starters for sure! They grow QUICKLY to be 20 – 25 feet tall and make stunning shade trees for your yard. Also called a Silk Tree or Persian Silk Tree, they will provide you with a rounded, expansive crown for shade within only 3-5 years.
Hummingbirds and butterflies love them. The flat, brown seed pods that form in the fall provide food for wildlife in fall and winter months, too.
Order yours at this great price today. You can’t go wrong with the Mimosa Tree for with its fast-growing nature and year-round appeal.
* SUPER fast-growing * Hardy for most soil types * Stunning flowers and leaves
I was pretty surprised when the really long box showed up. My mimosa tree was packed very well & taller than I expected. I love it! Thank Nature Hills.

The Lovely Mimosa Tree Review by KateintheDesert
I have never had any experience with the Mimosa tree except here in Arizona. I am sure that in some parts of our country it could be a problem, but here in zone 8 desert it is a wonderful tree. I love the scent of the blooms. I read that some thought it messy, but all trees need work and upkeep, but the dappled shade is wonderful. I planted mine from a seedling from a friend and it is very large and has a large canope, which is needed here in the heat of summer. It is about 6 years old. The butterflies and hummingbirds flock to it. I plan to plant another one in another part of the large lot we have here. There are a lot of seedlings that sprout, but are easy to pull out and not really a problem for me. It is all how you look at it. Nature is beautiful and so are the gifts it gives us. Enjoy!
Invasive! Review by maryhtc
I think this tree is very pretty when it is in someone elses yard nowhere near my house. We purchased a house after viewing it in the winter and thought there were 3 azaleas growing in front of the porch. When spring arrived, we realized that one of the plants was a mimose tree. We cut it down a year ago and the stump is still putting out shoots and the roots reach all the way across our property to the ditch (60 feet from the tree stump) into our septic lines and under our house. There are thousands of sprouts and we have been pulling up roots for a year. There is even one growing under our porch where it can't possibly be getting any light and one in the neighbors gutters. The worst thing is that no matter how many times you pour poison on it, pull up the shoots, or dig out the roots, it just keeps putting out more. Even cutting them with the lawnmower doesn't kill them.So, while it is a very pretty tree, do your neighbors a favor and don't plant this tree
Good and Bad Review by Darren
Although the Mimosa is a pretty tree when it blooms and does provide some shade...they are a pain to have if you have flower beds or gardens! These trees grow like weeds, EVERYWHERE! I always compare the smell to Pert shampoo, that is what it reminds me of.
