Provides a tropical feel and pink showy blooms!

These Mimosa trees provide colorful shows for months, while giving yards an elegant and tropical feel. Each spring green leaves emerge that come together in a V shape and the multiple short leaves provide the zen of an Asian garden.

As the summer heats up the green leaves fade into a dark burgundy color, that's unique and eye catching, it will make your yard look like it's a part of an oriental jungle. The dark foliage will pop against the other green trees, and bright blooming plants in your landscape.

Late in the spring breath taking fuzzy pink blooms will emerge in clusters all over your Mimosa tree. The hot pink blooms stand out against both the burgundy foliage, attracting attention from all over the neighborhood. Your neighbors probably haven't seen beautiful fuzzy blooms like these before.

Not only do these blooms provide enchanting color, but they attract birds and wildlife as well. Hummingbirds are especially known to be attracted to the fragrant blossoms. Plant a few trees around your deck, or in view from your favorite window and watch graceful hummingbirds come to check out the blooms all summer.

Chocolate Mimosa trees are drought hardy, and extremely easy to grow. These low maintenance trees will even thrive in many different varieties of poor soil. Simply plant them and be astonished by months of color before you know it.

Due to the unique color combinations that these trees provide, they sell out fast. We recommend getting yours before they're gone.

Started out as an ugly duckling! But after a couple weeks in the ground it started to blossom and now two months later - just gorgeous.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Chocolate Mimosa



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


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

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 Chocolate Mimosa 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 Chocolate Mimosa again after the transplant is complete.

It's beautiful purple leaves, fast rate of growth, fragrant blossoms and the uniqueness of the mimosa variety. I did not know this variety existed or I would have planted this type instead of the regular mimosa I put in my front yard a year ago. I understand there is a weeping chocolate Mimosa variety also. But I did not get one as they are not only expensive but also very small for the price

It is what Victoire wanted

I love the idea of having something different, my front yard garden is to inspire and my backyard garden is my private sanctuary..I'm sure this tree will do lots of inspiring..Thanks so much for carrying it!!

I grew up with the regular mimosa in Florida, but I have never seen this one and purple is my favorite color! If it is a beautiful as the picture, I will be buying more for my sunny yard in Georgia!
Holly M on Mar 4, 2017
Looking for a unique ornamental flowering tree to set the front yard, I was leaning towards a Magnolia until I saw this. Hopefully in time it grows to resemble some of the images I've seen of them. Fingers crossed.

Uniquely beautiful tree that can add charm to my landscape.
Roberto I on Feb 24, 2017
I have always LOVED mimosa trees having grown up with one in my front yard. We purchased our forever home last April and decided to plant two in our yard. We also had a large group of hummingbirds visiting last year, I counted 23 one afternoon. They will truly enjoy these trees.
