Hello Baa, Did you plant your mimosa tree from seed? I have probably twenty of these in my greenhouse that I started from seed, I had had in the yard here but they seem to grow pretty fast and maybe a little brittle here in zone 8 of western Oregon. My seed came from the midwest though from an uncle. These seed germinated quickly. I am hoping I can get more seed from my uncle.
it's a plant you either love or hate it. The blooms are so pretty, mine is inground and over 15' tall. The leaf texture is very dainty, allows for dappled shade over my lawn. It is a very messy plant 80% of the time, the leaves, flowers drop a lot, but I love it,
I finally recieved my first Mimoa plant from a fellow gardener ( I ve' been wanting one forever) . I is currently in a pot and stands about 10 inches high with just a peek of green foliage showing. I can't wait to get home from work today and truyly inspect it and possibly put it in the ground- I have the perfect place picked out for it. any tips for planting in zone 9a- Houston ?
