Mimosa trees are tropical evergreen trees with magnificent burst of colors, there is the golden yellow mimosa and the incredible pink flower mimosa.
There are a few species that are distinguishable which I will show you the difference but no matter which one you grow you'll love these fast growing fragrant trees that when in bloom become the centerpiece of your garden!
The pom pom like flowers are fragrant and grow to be about 1½ inches. The fruits that it produces are flat and grow in pods which average 7 inches in length. This is a typical characteristic of legumes.
Mimosa is considered to be a deciduous evergreen that if pruned and trimmed can remains a small bush to small tree but if left to take off, which they love to do, can become as tall as 20 to 40 feet tall.
But beware these trees can become quite invasive and very messy.
The seed pods litter both the tree and the ground and the seeds can easily germinate where they fall and before you know it you have sprouts covering the surrounding area of the tree.
So with that said you will have to work on the up keep around the tree but to me over all, they’re well worth it because of the silky beautiful flowers that bloom with the fern like leafs.
