One of the first things I did after buying my house (in the Eastern Panhandle of WV) 3 years ago was have a good-sized mimosa cut down. It was hollow in the middle, but the reason I had it cut down was its invasive qualities. There were seedlings everywhere in the yard, too. I still get seedlings in my garden beds 3 years later. The roots of the tree still produce watersprouts, too. But, at least they are not as aggressive as the Ailanthus Altissima, which is a BIG problem in this area. I want to avoid all species of Asian plants for ornamentals, as so many of them have become invasive here (Japanese honeysucle, Japanese barberry, etc.)

Do you have any seed pods from your mimosa. I would love to plant some and see if they come up. I am on 12 acres with loads of cedar trees we need to get rid of. Would be nice to have some blooming trees. E mail me if you have some or know of anyone who has some. scubacoz22@aol.com Kathy

Sorry, no seeds, other than those already in the soil.
