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.

How fast do mimosas grow?
pmedley33 p on Feb 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Fast! I received a stick two years ago and without fertilizer or extra watering it's now as tall as my two story house. The canopy is probably twice the height.
Is this a good indoor tree?
Derek R on Jan 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No. It needs lots of sun and more than an 8' ceiling. It's a beautiful tree and it can get fairly large outside (not huge), but too big for a house unless you are a talented bonsai horticulturist. Mine in Tx did not survive our clay soil. We had one in So Cal and it did very well, and one in central CA that was quite large for a mimosa. I'd love to have another one.
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.
How long is their lifespan ?
Sharon L on Oct 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Mimosa trees can live from 30-45 years, depending upon the soil, climate and available nutrients, sunlight and rainfall.
I love mimosa trees, but have a small yard, can I prune it to keep it the size I need?
Carrie R on Jun 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they can be pruned. After the pruning they will become fuller.
Do deer bother the tree when it is full grown or just during the sapling stage?
Susan on Apr 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: In the seven months I have had my Mimosa, I have only had the deer munch on it once, and that was a tender little branch. I have a fishing net staked about three feet around it to keep the deer at bay until it gets more size on it, but other than that, I really don't see a problem - but boy they sure do like my little apple tree, I have " IT " staked too - COMPLETELY!!! all is well!!! I really don't mind deer munching on the Mimosa but not now since it is still just a toddler - once it gets more size on it and can handle a bite here or there it'll be different.. if they want to nibble it'll be better then..
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.

Mimosa
This tree came very well packaged and I planted it as soon as I got it! I love Mimosa's. My other one died of the 'Wilt' and I am still in mourning over it, These are truly lovely trees. The Hummingbirds loved the flowers - they would come three or four at a time to drink from the flowers and the birds loved it, the little squirrels used to sit in it and eat their food and I could see it from the living-room where my chair is. But now I have a new one, and it is growing and seems happy where it is. I have it mulched and our Spring here in Virginia so far has been fairly wet, so its getting enough water and now that it is mid-May it is out in full foliage. I can't wait until it gets a little more growth on it. I think one of things about plants is the watching them grow and mature and to show you their happiness with their beauty and growth. This one is placed where I can watch this one grow too, and the birds are already visiting it to sit upon its branches. I was surprised at how fast it grew in one season - as it grew at least three feet its first year in the ground. These trees are a little temperamental but the wait is worth it and its shade will cover my deck and provide shade from the early morning sun coming in my glass sliding doors.. Love it.. highly recommend the Mimosa, just read up on it and make sure you understand it thoroughly BEFORE you plant it.. They are worth the care. Thank you Stark, you have done it again.. Love my little tree!! Be prepared to smile :o).

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.

Healthy tree On time
Received this Mimosa a year ago. Planted it last spring. I live in Western PA, so the growing conditions aren't ideal, but sure enough this year the tree had buds and leaves on it. The quality of the tree upon arrival was great. It also came on schedule. Thanks and I'll be ordering again I'm sure.

Nice
When it came it was just a stick was not to sure about that. Then it started budding and it is growing nicely. A dog chewed the top off and didn't know if it would make it but it is coming along very well.

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.
