To bring in humming birds
Gregory M on Sep 28, 2016
We are visiting my parents in Spain and one of the city's shopping streets is lined with these trees. They're all in bloom and smell amazing. Even though the trees are messy and drop leaves and flowers all the time, the smell of the flowers is worth it.

My Mimosa grew just a feet, or so, in more than a year and a half. What should I do?
Sidney on Mar 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Don't worry, it could be because of the soil you planted it in or too much/too little water. Make sure it gets lots of sunshine.
I planted my tree last year and seems to be doing well although I still have it staked to keep it steady until it's bigger. My concern is I have noticed branches yellowing and then dying and falling off. There are still healthy branches but it seems more are starting to die. What can I do?
Brigitte T on Jul 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The simple thing would be to keep the dead limbs pruned off so that the remaining healthy limbs can thrive. Additionally, I would suggest getting some good pictures of the issue (before pruning) and reaching out locally for expert help where you're located. There is an issue called "mimosa wilt" that isn't a problem everywhere, but it could be something that is affecting mimosa trees in your area.

Amazing! Transplanted this tree from the old house to the new one. It had been in the ground about a year. On a rainy day, took the risk of transplanting and now it's budding! Great tree.

Well pleased
It swiftly arrived in a shipping tube, planted right away and it immediately "took off". Has grown well and flourished in spite of the deer who as it turns out, like it as much as I. Looking forward to the plumes that may come this year or next.

Great little survivor
I got the mimosa sapling two years ago, very late in the season, and planted it right away. It leafed out beautifully, and then the dreadful neighborhood deer came and ate it to ribbons. There was nothing but the skinny trunk left. Wanting to give it another chance, I fenced the trunk and hoped it might recover. Last spring it came back - not as beautiful or luxuriantly as before, just a small growth, but it keeps growing and I hope one day will spread and flower, with adequate protection. Very pleased to have this determined little tree.

Love this tree
I have had other Mimosas that didn't do well but this one is outstanding! It has grown 4 ft in it's first year. I'm so excited for when it will bloom! Thank you!
