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 -10 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.

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.

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.

Looking Good After A Year
Again, (like the Weeping Williow I purchased) I was surprised at the itty bitty tree that I got in the mail. Was not sure if it would grow because it had just one set of leaves on it! One summer later and it has just taken off! Has several sets of leaves and the tree is looking healthy and strong. Can't wait for it to flower soon.

Little Twiggy is very disappointing
Very disappointing. It more resembled a twig with some leaves as opposed to a tree. No side branches only a few leaves on the top. The trunk is barely 1/4" wide. Ad says 3-4' tall and ours was barely over 3'. It arrived half dead and wilted. its still alive due to careful watering.
Certainly, we did not feel that we got $60 worth, more like $30 worth due to its tiny size. We named him little twiggy

So far so good
The packaging was done very well, the tree survived it's long journey. It seems to have taken well, not much new growth yet but it's only been a month. I've been a bit protective over it, if I think we might get hail, I try and cover it. It reacts to light and dark, by closing it's leaves in the dark. Hoping it grows a thicker trunk to survive the winter.

A day is like a thousand years....
I don't need to worry about this tree growing too quickly. After 3 months, not much has changed although the leaves have darkened. It will take a year before I expect to see a major difference - if they survive winter in western New York.

two trees
i bought 2 sizes, 2-3 and 3-5. 2-3 was healthy and happy. 3-5 was broken at top and struggling. 3-5 is coming back, but way behind 2-3. Sad to pay $20 more for it.

Not Sure
Not sure if I like or dislike. I followed the planting advice. Bought the fertilizer and the potting soil, the tree has been in the ground for over a month now, but no signs of growth.

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.

My mom mentioned something about this tree and I didn't think much about it. I took a walk thru my neighborhood last weekend and saw a tree that I fell in LOVE with!! You guessed it, come to find out the tree that I found was the tree that my mother had talked about. I typically dot go crazy over trees but I did over this one. Can't wait to get it!!!

I have my fingers crossed, I know at my altitude (7000 ft) I am taking a chance, but this is a beautiful tree. I love the way it looks, it's pink flowers, and it's canopy. I am planting it on the south side, and as long as I have time to wrap it if we get a flash freeze in September, it should tolerate winter.
Lori C on May 23, 2017
The city has some of these planted along the sidewalks here in Milwaukee - very nice trees and they've been here for years so I know they will grow just fine in Zone 5b

Why does the Mimosa tree not ship to Florida ?
Barbara N on Jun 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Agricultural restrictions prohibits us from shipping it into your state.
Is it okay to plant this tree in an area with concrete and gas/sewer lines a few feet away?
Angela S on Jun 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would plant at least 25 feet away from gas/sewer lines.
Do all Mimosa trees bloom?
Connie G on Jun 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes they do.
Are these trees fast growing trees? How long does it take to get to be shade height?
Jan H on Jun 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They can grow 3+ feet per year. It could take 3-4 years.
I live in Las Vegas ,will it grow well thru every year with local typical heavy heat ?
George S on Jul 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These trees are amazing. I have also seen them in the Caribbean and the South. So yes, maybe. Just water it until established.
can it grow in northern Indiana ?
Harrison S on Apr 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It should, I am just south of Cleveland, Ohio and mine seems to be doing great!
We have a high water table so it's quite wet about 3 feet down. Will the mimosa tolerate this?
Cherry G on Aug 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: In my experience, Mimosa trees like to be evenly watered, but will not do well in soggy ground. If there is a high place in your yard where the water might drain sufficiently, that would probably be ok. I would recommend a weeping willow, which would LOVE such a spot! Hope this helps!
Would it be best to wait to fall to plant this tree?
Irene P on Jun 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can plant at anytime. The key is making sure it gets enough water.
Poor soil or not? Is it a sturdy tree?
Irene P on Jun 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is a sturdy tree, and adaptable to various types of soil.
