Mimosa trees trees are a nuisance or weed tree here in TN. I think they have been placed on a not to be sold plant list for Nurseries from the state of TN, but I'm not certain when it is supposed to go into affect.

I both love and hate Mimosa. I grew up with the heavy sweat smell of the Mimosa in the moist damp air of the morning or late afternoon. And growing up I thought I would love to have one in my yard. I moved into my current home 3 years ago and their was a Mimosa at the rear corner of the house, sadly it was to close to the foundation. So we cut it down and now 3 years later it sends up multiple suckers that I cut back every year and am in dire need of using stump killer to finish off. Every time I disturb the dirt in my yard I inevitably have a multitude of seedlings. So it is a nuisance but really my silver maple also makes a huge mess. Maybe it's not the tree for everyone and it may not be a tree to plant close to natural waterways but with care maybe there is a place for this lovely tree in our yards and hearts. I think what is needed a sterile cultivar.
