The mimosa truly offers something for everyone interested in beauty. Native to Asia and Africa, this tree has found a home from Pennsylvania to South Florida, and all the way across the Central United States to California. This deciduous tree is low branching with light gray bark, arching limbs, and fern-like green leaves. The show stealer comes in the summer with the Mimosa's brilliantly colored flowers which consist of many stamens. In full or partial sun this tree is sure to thrive. It is drought tolerant and prefers well-drained, acidic soil; although it is extremely adaptable to many soil conditions. This tree's fragrant flowers are an instant attraction to butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees who are natural pollinators for the flowers in your bed and the fruit on your trees and vines. Another fine aspect of this tree is that the leaves curl in the night air and unfurl in the morning sun giving this tree the moniker of â€œSleeping Treeâ€. As you can see, this tree really does offer something for every planting enthusiast.
