Product Information

The canary-yellow blooms of the Flowering Mimosa Tree are a spectacular sight from January to April every year, where hundreds of bobbly yellow blooms smother the branches of the Mimosa tree in a lemon haze, almost hiding the stunning grey green filigree foliage that makes this tree a handsome year round feature in the garden.

Set among a ball of fern-like leaves on a standard stem, the eye-catching pom-pom blooms not only look a picture but carry a heavenly fragrance and provide a valuable nectar source for friendy insects that emerge in milder weather.

Widely seen across southern Europe, this variety will thrive outdoors in most of the UK too and is a great plant for conservatories or sunny corners of a room indoors in regions prone to severe frost - altogether a super tree to own!

It's a great choice for a large container too producing a really unique feature tree and if you buy a pair you can frame doorways and entrances.

Care Information

Planting Advice for Mimosa:

  • Grow mimosa in a sunny, sheltered site in well-drained, neutral to acid soil.  Protect from frost and winds.
  • Best planted in the spring, after all danger of frosts has passed, so that new wood is given the longest possible ripening period before its first winter.
  • If you garden in an exposed or frost-prone area, then Mimosa is best grown in a large pot where it will make a great conservatory plant and should be watered only occasionally over winter.
  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill once the shrub is in place.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot and refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
  • If you're planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast.
  • Use the best ericaceous compost you can buy and some sand or grit for drainage. 

Aftercare Advice for Mimosa:

  • Hardy to -10C you'll need to provide shelter from the worst of the winter weather as Mimosa does not like the cold.
  • If damaged by cold weather, it should regrow from the base as a multi-stem, which is ideal if planted in a small garden as it will restrict its growth.
  • All new growth is more susceptible to damage from cold weather, so provide adequate frost protection for the first two years to help it survive. 

Pruning Advice for Mimosa:

  • Pruning is not necessary apart from to remove any branches that are dead or damaged. Remove any shoots that appear along the stem to keep it clean.
