Here is the unvarnished truth about the Mimosa tree from one who knows...Everything you ever heard about this plant is true. Beautiful...yes invasive ...yes. I have no doubts that if I left this corner of mine and it was untended in two years it would be completely covered with Mimosa trees. I fight to control them constantly. I love them madly and am willing to pay the price to have the ones I want and take out the others. All said and done, it is a personal thing for everyone. If you want one try to gather and burn the seed pods or they can be a problem. I do not think there is another tree that smell so sweet and blooms so long, which is why I love it. I can also understand why some people would not like it because of its invasive ways... To each his own...shirleyt

I have learned to gather as many seed pods a I possibly can and destroy or give them away. Here they don't seem to like to be transplanted so if one wants one it is almost essential to start from a seed.
