Mimosa Tree

Anonymous added on October 18, 2012 | Answered

I love the bloom of a mimosa tree but it seems to leave a lot of debris on the ground. Is the tree worth the mess?

NO, this tree is not worth the trouble! While mimosa trees have a pretty bloom, they are very brittle and very messy. Most people consider mimosa trees to be a weed. You probably will not find a mimosa for sale If you have access to one in the wild, tag it and dig after all the leaves have fallen. Dig a 10" rootball for each 1" in tree diameter.
