Mimosa Tree

Fast growing, flowering tree of tropical characteristics
that is anything but common.


In China some believe that the Mimosa (Albizia julibrissin) will calm the mind and spirit.  Step out to your yard, relax and this unique and appealing deciduous tree will confirm that. 


Often grown as an ornamental for its unique and beautiful features, the Mimosa generally grows 20-25 feet in height. Also called a Silk Tree or Persian Silk Tree, it will provide you with a rounded, expansive crown for shade within only 3-5 years. 
 
Its one-of-a-kind leaf structure and year-round floral display ensure that your Mimosa will be a valued aspect of your landscape in any season.


It’s difficult to know what part of this tree is most appealing.  The leaves are unique, consisting of long, fern-like strands of 20-30 pairs of oblong leaflets. 
 
At night, or when it rains, your Mimosa will put on a miraculous demonstration that lives up to its Persian name Shabkhosb (meaning “night sleeper”), as they bow gracefully downward. 
 
Your Mimosa’s flowers will further delight the senses all summer long as the 2-inch pom-pom-like clusters of silken threads seem to float among the leaves.


Hummingbirds and butterflies are irresistibly drawn to their succulent scent.  Some people think they smell like nutmeg. The flat, brown seed pods that later form will further provide food for wildlife.
 
The Mimosa is a fast-growing, unique and beautiful landscape tree that will grow in almost any conditions. 
 
You can’t go wrong with the Mimosa Tree for with its fast-growing nature and year-round appeal.

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.

Great Trees - Now How to Keep the Deer Away?? Review by Nick
Rating
Hi - 3 years ago we planted 37 of these up and down our driveway as a boulevard. We cut them down at the end of year one and last year and this year the growth has been excellent. All 37 even survived the horrendous Virginia winter of last year (2009/10). The only problem we have is our local voracious deer. They are constantly eating all the lower leaves. No spray seems to work and nets can work on some branches but look horrible. Any ideas?? I think the trees will live but I can't wait for them all to get significant branches over 7ft so the deer can't get them. Thanks!
Looks pretty and that is where it ends... Review by mrbrown28

Growing up as a child my parents planted a Mimosa next to our back porch. It grew quickly and was pretty. However, this is one of the "dirtiest" trees around. When the flowers die off they leave a fowl smelling rotting slippery mess when they fall off the tree. Since there are so many flowers this becomes a real issue. Some had to literally be scraped off the porch by hand so we wouldn't slip and fall. Then is the issue of invasiveness. My father took down the tree after 15 years since it started to die. That was over 30 years ago, and I am still finding Mimosa sprout rearing their nuisance heads. If you don't mind the mess and pulling up hundreds of sprouts a year, it is a lovely plant.

I have several of these that I cultivate as bonsai. Be aware that if you re-pot or transplant them, they go into shock. But they will recover nicely.
