Commonly planted near back patios because they attract hummingbirds like no other tree we've ever seen.
Great where you need a small to medium sized ornamental.
Mimosa trees rapidly grow to about 20-25 ft. They have a tropical look, but are very hardy. They adapt to almost any soil type. They are drought tolerant and can be planted in full sun or partial shade.
Fragrant, hot pink blooms grow in clusters, adding an explosion of color and excitement to any spring setting.
The bark is a gentle light gray, giving you a beautiful contrast of color.
Mimosa Trees tend to have very little branching in the first few years. This is nothing to worry about, as your tree becomes more mature, branching will increase.
Easy to grow tree, even tolerates drought conditions. Also known as the "Silk Tree" because of its stunning, shimmering flowers.
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your 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.
Next, separate the roots of your 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.
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 Mimosa Tree again after the transplant is complete.
To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
