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

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.

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

Fast Growing Tree...
I love this tree. And I would have given it a 5 ***** Star, BUT.. The fact of planting them close to your home, espeically somewhere near where you may chill out or relax is NOT a good idea.. This tree attracts swarms of bees in blooming season. Also, it creates a syrup substance that makes a literal mess on patios and in my case a deck. And when its leaves fall, its a mess as well. Hard to rake up. I would definitely recommend this tree as a fast growing attractive tree, but not near where you enjoy spending time outdoors. Especially if you have children.

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.

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.
January 1, 2013
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
January 1, 2013
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

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
January 1, 2013
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
January 1, 2013
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
January 1, 2013
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.

Planting & Care

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

Mimosa Tree Planting Diretions

Choosing a location: Mimosa trees are native to Asia and the Middle East and were originally introduced to the United States in 1785. Their beautiful fluffy, silky blooms range in color from white to shades of red and deep pink that attract hummingbirds and butterflies. The appearance of the delicate blooms (that typically begin to emerge in June) has given mimosas the nickname "silk tree." Mimosa trees are rapid growers that mature to 20-25 feet tall and 10-20 feet wide and are recommended for growing zones 6b-9b. They offer a stunning display of blooms, attract delightful wild life and require little to no care or pruning.


Planting instructions: Soil testing is always recommended when planting a new plant. However, mimosa trees are highly adaptable to many different environments (except for salty soils). 

1) Your location should have well draining soil and receive full sun-light.

2) Dig your hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. This will allow the roots to spread through the loosened soil in the early stages. 

3) Mix in peat moss with the soil removed from the hole with ratio of one part peat moss to four parts soil.  Sphagnum peat moss will aid in the fertility and drainage of the soil. 

4) Insert the tree into the planting hole and gently spread the roots by combing them with your hands.

5) Gradually back-fill your hole with the amended soil and gently firm the soil down with a shovel. Make sure not to pile higher than the soil level, or crown, where the tree's roots meet the trunk.

6) Water your planting site deeply with a slow trickling hose. You'll want to water enough in order to saturate down to about an inch below the soil.


Watering: It's very important that you water your mimosa tree sparingly. The need for watering should only be during excessive dry spells. The peat moss soil mixture will assist with drainage since the tree will not do well with excess water. A steady flow of water from a hose for about 10-15 minutes once every two weeks should be enough. Anything more than that results in diseases related to over watering, like root rot. 


Fertilizing: When fertilizing your mimosa tree select an all-natural, organic, slow-release tree fertilizer. Fertilize in the early part of the spring growing season when it's not too hot or cold. Check your forecast to be sure no heavy rain fall will occur within a couple of days of applying the fertilizer. Too much rain could potentially wash away a lot of the slow-releasing fertilizer. Apply to the soil according to the package instructions. Typically slow-release is granular or pelletized and can simply be sprinkled around the planting site. Water will gradually soak the nutrients into the soil where your mimosa tree will absorb them over time. Other forms of slow-release fertilizers can be in the form of stakes that insert into the ground near the tree or in a liquid form that can be applied using a sprayer. Water after applying your fertilizer to prevent salt build up, which can burn the tree. 


Pruning: Your mimosa tree will not require very much attention but could benefit from some minor pruning in the fall season. Remove branches growing along the lower trunk area at a 45-degree angle with sterilized pruning shears just beyond the neck collar (where the limb connects to the trunk). Cutting the neck collar can damage the tree. Removing the lower limbs encourages more growth towards the top of the tree. A pole saw is useful for removing dead limbs, for pruning branches out of reach and for forming the shape of your mimosa's canopy. Thinner branches should be cut 3-5 inches from the end of the limb to promote thicker canopy growth. 

*Sterilize your tools after each cut to prevent contamination. Antibacterial soap and/or rubbing alcohol are perfect for cleaning your tools. 

Mimosa trees are not only known for their splendid feathery blooms but also for the enchanting smell the blooms produce. "Albizia Calm" is the extract derived from mimosa trees that is known to support mental calmness. A healing salve can also be made from the mimosa tree and it is primarily used in the treatment of skin irritation and burns. The leaves of your mimosa tree can also be collected and used as a tea that sooths mouth soreness. Mimosa trees are very low maintenance, a delight for the senses and a beautiful addition for your landscape.

Does the mimosa have roots that spread horizontally? I want to plant next to a fence.
DeAnne C on May 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The roots system of the Mimosa can grow to nearly 3 times as large as the tree's crown, so be sure not to plant near sidewalks, garden beds, or your home as it may cause problems for you down the road.
Our Mimosa Tree is about 5 years old we had a very hard winter here in West Virginia and the tree is coming out late and not all branches are getting leaves and alot of the leaves are on the trunk of the tree starting at the ground. Should I cut off "ALL" the big limbs and branchs that does not have leaves or wait? Should I cut some of them off the trunk of the tree?
Lisa G on Jun 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Take a coin or your fingernail and gently scratch the bark on the branches. If the color underneath isn't a light color ranging from green to light tan remove the branch. This means it will not recover. If the branch shows a light color under the bark give it more time to recover.
Our mimosa tree is several years old and just spectacular with greenery; however, it has never had flowers. Any thoughts as to why it has not bloomed?
Mary W on Jun 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Your Mimosa Tree could not be blooming for many reasons. Maybe it isn't getting enough sun or nutrients. Maybe it needs to be pruned. Follow the care instructions on the link below and hopefully you'll have blooms next season.

Anna M on Mar 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: nooooooooo. The deer chewed off the tops of mine in the fall.
I have a newly planted young mimosa tree that has yellowing leaves and the leaves stay closed. Any idea what is going on?
Susan C on Jun 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Not sure where you live, but my mimosa tree is only about 1 yr. old & still struggling in Illinois. Usually yellow leaves indicate over watering. I believe the ones closed up will eventually open up. I thought mine was dead from the harsh,severe winter, but appears to be alive. I think it takes a few years to really get it established unless you live in the south.

We have been having wind storms. How sturdy are mimosa trees?

I have a Mimosa tree that hasn't gotten any of it's leaves, It has mulch around . I've been told it has to be really warm for them to get their leaves. It is 3 years old . When should I expect leaves.?
Holly on Jun 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have had a mimosa here in Colorado now for two year. It is a late starter even in this dry, arid climate at 7000+ feet. Usually see growth begin in late May. As I have just returned from a long vacation and noticed there is just now leaf and branches beginning. We did have a longer than normal winter this year. Our normal summer temps are approx high 70s to mid 90s. I have a larger mimosa growing in North Carolina where the hot temp is much more humid. They do abundantly well there. As for the mulch, keep the base of the tree clear to about 4 inches and have a depth of about 2 inches, water well once every three days and a misting on the tree randomly through the week helps also. In the dryer climate they tend to grow slower than in the more humid climate.
when should you prune a mimosa tree?
cindy on Oct 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Light pruning on Mimosa trees is safe any time of year, they are not particular about when they are pruned. If you choose to heavily cut back branches, the safest time in during the dormant season.
My mimosa tree has what looks like a type of insect that feeds on it. What could that be?
A shopper on Jul 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: That is really hard to answer without being able to see it. It could be many things, spider mites, carpenter worms, webworms. Which these all can be treated by applying insecticides, neem oil, insecticidal soaps. After treating it is wise to clean and remove the dead leaf debris.

I live in a micro climate. 5500ft on the back side of the San Bernardino mountains. Can these trees handle a freeze?
Moonstone on Aug 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I live in the DFW area of Texas and we typically get a couple of freezing days a year. This tree handles them just fine. It's also extremely heat tolerant. This is a very fast growing tree. And it is beautiful when in bloom - my non-professional advice would be to go for it - it's lovely.
My Mimosa came and is a five foot stick. Will it develop branches?
Leanne M on Feb 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I was concerned when mine came that way too, but it ended up sprouting leaves and branches. It showed signs of life late spring or maybe even mid summer. Then the deer ate all the leaves. I can't remember for sure, but I thought it was dead. This past summer it grew like crazy and actually began resembling the tree that I'm excited to have. I planted it almost two years ago. To check for life after you think it should have sprouted or done something, the company told me, to scrape alittle of the bark away. If it is alive it will reveal green under bark.
Is this tree similar to the touch me not where the leaves close when touched?
Courtney S on May 15, 2017

When do mimosas left out?
Nancy W on May 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: All of the mature trees in Kansas City have leafed out and are blooming but unfortunately our cold snap really slowed ours down and it is just beginning to barely leaf out. We are waiting to see if it pulls out of it.
Is it invasive?
Teresa H on May 21, 2016
In my opinion and experience NO! Depends on where you live. In the south, the seed pods can easily start new trees. The tree itself is not invasive; but when mature it puts out a lot of seeds in seed pods. In the north the tree is slow growing and the seeds/pods are hard to get to germinate. I have had mimosa trees in Louisiana, Florida, and, Upstate New York! Rod

What is expected lifespan of the Mimosa tree?
Margie S on May 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I had one in Florida which was about 20 years old when I left there! My Dad claims this tree will go and go and go and suddenly one day you walk out and its dead! But that has not been my experience.
