Get months of blooms, even up north!

By being cold hardy to growing zone five the Cold Hardy Mimosa Tree can withstand freezing temperatures down to -20 degrees, making it the most cold hardy Mimosa variety available. This Mimosa will thrive under heavy layers of ice and snow with no trouble at all. 

The Cold Hardy Mimosa Tree brings an exotic look to neighborhoods all over the country, even up north with their lush green leaf pairs that pop against their smooth grey trunks for a beautiful display of contrasting colors. 

Then in the summer around mid June their canopies explode with hundreds of pink blossoms all over that last until September. The flowers have multiple long stamens giving mimosa trees their nickname, the ‘Silk Tree’. 

The vibrant blooms attract a variety of wildlife, including hummingbirds and butterflies, which are a delight to watch as they flutter around the landscape, gracefully floating from bloom to bloom. 

This tough Mimosa cultivar is also extremely drought tolerant and heat resistant, so it will grow in the hottest areas of the south, and continue to bloom during long, dry summer days. 

By growing 30 to 40 feet tall and 20 to 25 feet wide, the Cold Hardy Mimosa tree fits perfectly into any landscape, even those with limited space. Their large thick canopies provide relaxing shade to hang out in during summer days with blistering heat. 

Plant your Cold Hardy Mimosa tree today to receive up to four months of blooms on a tree that will survive in a variety of poor soils and different climate conditions.

Hardy Mimosa
It was in great shape when it arrived and took to planting well. It took the deer a couple of days, but they began munching on the fresh buds so I had to protect the tree from them. Once it is established it should not be a problem seeing how the others around here do.

Very fast growing beautiful tree!
I would definitely recommend this tree to anyone looking for a hardy fast growing tree. We purchased 4 of them and 2 are doing great. 2 are struggling, but hanging in there. The 2 that are doing well are thriving and we are amazed at how much they've grown. They both have lots of foliage already and have grew multiple limbs. I think the other 2 may have had a tough start as I initially planted them by a ditch that separates our house from our property which thought was ideal because it stays damp, but I forgot that I had recently put some mosquito dunks in it to keep them down. So; my fault! Since transplanting them they've both gotten new growth on the tree, but we are still waiting for greenery! Overall very pleased with my purchases and would definitely recommend mims to anyone looking for a nice tree.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Cold Hardy Mimosa Tree

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Cold Hardy Mimosa Tree .

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Cold Hardy Mimosa Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Cold Hardy Mimosa Tree again after the transplant is complete.
