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.

STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) 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.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. 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.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.

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!!!!
