MIMOSA (TREE)

Beautiful and fragrant, I won't be without a mimosa tree in my yard.  Loved by butterflies and hummingbirds, when these trees are in bloom, the show is spectacular...and on a humid evening, the graceful tree's spicy fragrance fills the air.

These trees are considered by some to be invasive; even weeds.  But to me, they are worth the extra trouble.

Mimosa trees are very fast growing and can attain 6' or more in one season.

  • Sun or a little shade
  • Can be short-lived
