Colorful Blooms for Months, Even in Freezing Temperatures
Why Cold Hardy Mimosa Trees?
With the Cold Hardy Mimosa, you get gorgeous, full pink blooms that can withstand freezing temperatures down to -10 degrees, making it the hardiest Mimosa variety available.
In fact, this durable tree thrives under heavy layers of ice and snow with no trouble, so it’s highly adaptable and blooms beautifully, even up North. The Cold Hardy Mimosa flourishes around mid-June, made unique by hundreds of pink blossoms that last until September. The flowers’ longer silhouettes give the tree its nickname, the Silk Tree, because their silken finish lends unique texture to the Mimosa.
And you get this one-of-a-kind look for nearly four months because the tough, durable Mimosa is extremely hardy, drought-tolerant and heat resistant. That means it thrives in the hot, dry South and outlasts cold snaps up North. In the toughest conditions, it continues to attract graceful wildlife like hummingbirds and bees but resists deer. So, there’s nothing the Mimosa can’t handle, blooming beautifully through it all.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Your location should have well-draining soil and receive full sunlight (6 to 8 hours of sun daily).
Dig your hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Insert the tree into the planting hole, backfill the soil, and tamp down. Then, water with a slow trickling hose for about 1 to 2 minutes.
2. Watering: You’ll only need to water during long dry spells. In fact, a steady flow of water from a hose for about 10 to 15 minutes, once every two weeks, should be enough.
3. Fertilizing: Feed in the early spring with a slow-release fertilizer and follow the label instructions.4. Pruning: Your Mimosa could benefit from some minor pruning in the fall season. Remove branches growing along the lower trunk area at a 45-degree angle – this encourages more growth towards the top of the tree. Thinner branches should be cut 3 to 5 inches from the end of the limb to promote thicker canopy growth.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Customer Reviews & Photos
So far, so good. It lost its leaves but is still green
Both trees arrived in good condition, after a couple days I planted them. They both started growing new growth, then after a couple days one of them dropped all leaves, I was really disappointed with that. Just for the heck of it I kept on watering that tree and now I can see signs of new growth. Thats interesting. PS :the other tree is still doing fine.
Stress from shipping and transplanting can cause leaf drop. It sounds like it's beginning to recover which is great news! Let us know if we can help!
When it first arrived, I seriously questioned it. Leaves and limbs off and scattered in container. After planting it, it's doing great!
When my tree arrived, in August in the heat of the summer, I took it out of the box and all of the leaves proceeded to fall off. I left it in the container it came in, put it outside and watered it every few days for a couple of weeks. It appears to be alive and was planted in the ground yesterday. Look forward to seeing how it does
Waited to see leaves on tree, now 08/14/2021 (received and planted tree 08/02/2021), leaves. Good experience altogether.
