This hardy, tropical looking ornamental tree will bring an exotic look to your yard. It is heat and humidity tolerant and can sustain a certain level of drought as well. It is also known as The Persian Silk Tree because of the incredibly fragrant and beautiful pink flower clusters with an unusual thread-like petals. The greenery is similar to a fern and gives a light base for the cluster of flowers to sit upon. The flowers attract pollinators like butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees to your yard. It is extremely fast growing and reaches a mature height of 20-30 ft with a spread of 20-30 ft. It is hardy in USDA Zones 6-9.

Mimosa trees tend to have very little branching the first few years, but as your tree grows and matures the branching will continually increase.

Most Plant Me Green trees can be shipped and planted any time of year, unless the variety is specified as only seasonal delivery (such as bare root trees). Our shipping schedule is Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. This is to ensure our trees do not stay in a box longer than necessary and arrive to you as healthy as possible. If a package needs to arrive prior to a specific date, or at a more convenient time for you, please notate that upon placement of your order. On some occasions, severe weather and other unusual issues can delay shipping and delivery of your Plant Me Green package. Holiday shipping schedules are set by the carriers.
First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need. Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system. Once the tree is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material. Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets. When finished, water thoroughly. To insure your plants a successful growth rate and productive life, plant your seedlings per the instructions included in your Plant Me Green package.

It died

Love my tree!

I was so excited to get my tree. It was well rooted in a good sized pot. It has very moist with newspaper and thick plastic wrap. I came in a very well constructed box and was attached very well in the box. I was so surprised at the tree itself. It was alive, green, had lovely leaves, and looked well. It was also taller than I expected. I have only had it for 3 weeks and we have had terrible rain since we planted it but it looks wonderful. I am very happy with this company and my tree!!!!
