Mimosa Tree

The Hummingbird's Favorite Tree - And it could be yours too!

Height:

The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back the growth that was trimmed.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you better, thicker shade the first full growing season.

Ships at the Proper Planting Time for Your Area
South ships on date above. North ships in spring.

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.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

It's Easy to Plant your Mimosa Tree


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

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

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

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.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

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.

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 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.

Driving through Marlboro, MA. , ZONE 6 , My wife spotted a mature Mimosa tree in full bloom. I was amazed as I hadnt seen one in years. My parents home in Redding, CA. is surrounded by Mimosas and hummingbirds. I am now growing one of these trees. I love how the leaves go to sleep at night. I am wintering it inside and intend to plant it outside in a couple of years.

I planted my Mimosa tree in my hummingbird garden. Great service.

By: Todd
Just received the two hybrid poplar trees a couple days ago, and got them planted. They looked wonderful! Even had leaves on them, and very little wilt. Thank you so much for your help, and taking care of me quickly. Very nice company to deal with. Hope yall have a great week!

By: Jane in Hurricane, WV
I have had Mimosa trees in my yard for thirty years, and they are the most beautiful and fragrant trees I have ever seen. Besides being so beautiful, the fragrance of the flowers in the mornings and evenings is wonderful. You will be amazed at all the Humming Birds and hundreds of Butterflies that come to the trees when the flowers bloom. I could not believe how many Butterflies are constantly fluttering in the tops of the tree. I have spent hours just watching them. Get this tree and you will love it for years as I have.

By: Katherine in San Antonio, TX
The mimosa tree was my grandmothers favorite tree growing up and I bought it in her memory for my new house. I can see why it was her favorite. Even as a young tree, your eyes are drawn to it...its playful and different from most in the neighborhood. Thank you for sending such a healthy and beautiful tree that is sure to bring me and my family much joy.

Growing well. A great tree!

By: Deitra in Dayton, OH
I planted a small mimosa tree at my dads house in Virginia. It was about 12 inches tall after planting. Within three years it had soared to about 10-12 feet tall and it bloomed just a few that year. But the next year it was covered in blooms and could be smelled by anyone within a block. My parents sold the house and the current owner had it cut down... Tells you how much he knew about trees.

We planted the Mimosa tree in our large back yard for beauty. It has really grown ,about 5 feet, this first year. We are very happy with it.

By: Jean in Wolf Point, MT
I loved both of the Mimosa trees I got from you, but I moved to Montana last fall. Sad to lose two very nice trees.

By: Shawne in Rochester, NY
The mimosa tree we received spent 8 months in a temporary pot and was then planted outside. We live in New York state so we have very cold winters and spring doesnt always come early. As soon as we planted it outside the deer munched on it. The tree immediately started leafing and took off growing. I am very please with the hardiness of this tree. Looking forward to this growing season.

By: Edward in Pittsburgh, PA
Weve had our mimosa tree planted on our front hillside for 15 years. The humming bird was non-existant in our lives until we put it in. We see humming birds now every year. Besides this it provides us with the birds, privacy, and beauty!

It made it through the winter and is starting to turn green.

What a wonderful tree. My friend bought one from here for me as a gift. Fast shipping, awesome customer service, and good prices. Thank You Fast Growing Trees Nursery!

By: bill smith
one of the best things i've seen with this tree is that each night the leave will close. and then open in the daytime very neat

By: Carol Hector-Harris
It arrived healthy and looked as if it will do well. right now there are no leaves on it. I hope that is because it is winter and that it will continue to grow once Spring arrives.

By: vanessa cunningham
I ordered my mimosa late spring/early summer and was very pleased with the plant when it arrived. It got planted right before a brutal heat-wave/drought in southern illinois. This little feller didn't do much growing but survived the conditions with bi-weekly waterings. However, as soon as the weather became more seasonable it went nuts! It is even producing blooms just a few months after being planted which I didn't expect from a 3-4 foot tree. I am very pleased with the quality of the stock recieved from fast-growing trees. Will definately recommend and order again from them.

By: Addison Gast
I received two of these trees just before one of the deepest,heviest frost (freeze) in Texas in years. My landscaper planted them right away and I am amazed to see new leaf buds on the branches today. FGT is the best place to order ALL your plants.

My wife and I have a small home in a small town in the St.Louis Metro East area. A Mimosa tree just started growing on the side of our house where we already have quite a few shrubs, roses, evergreens and a wonderful Magnolia tree. Usually I pull any kind of evasive growth as soon as I see it start, but this one was different. I didn't know what it was but I sure liked the way it looked and the spot it choose to grow in needed something anyway. We had some friends over for a bar-b-q and my buddy, who is a landscaper, recognized it and said how lucky we were to have one growing in our yard. That was almost 3 years ago. This summer the Mimosa has really matured, and with the help of some strategic pruning through the years, it's really taken shape. This year the blooms are amazing. After learning more about the tree I couldn't be happier! Thanks God!
