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.

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.
Wonderful! Review by wburchik

When my "tree" arrived I was a little skepticle as it was no more then a long stick with a few roots. This surprised me as everything I have ordered from you has been so different. But I kept the faith, and planted it anyway, just the way I would as if it was a full, lush, bare root specimin. Well let me tell you, it was only in the ground for about 3 days when it burst out with buds everywhere. It now has little branches growing from it, and is starting to look like a tree. The best part of all is that it has only been in the ground for about a month! This is yet another wonderful purchase from Nature Hills Nursery, and another reason why I keep coming back!

Butterflies (mimosa) Review by Gloria Geringer
Rating
The Mimosa in full bloom is a beautiful tree indeed. The butterflies cover the top of the tree and then it looks like a butterfly tree. It is really a site! I love to watch the hummingbirds buzz around it also they are so fast and l like to hear the sounds that they make. Love the pink blooms, but it can be a mess when the tree starts to lose all it's beauty. The next year, you have it all again, and that is fabulous.
