This very fast-growing, small tree has a low branching, open, spreading habit and delicate, lacy, almost fern-like foliage.
Fragrant, silky, white and pink puffy pompom blooms, two to three inches in diameter, appear in abundance from late April to September creating a spectacular sight. Mimosa is popular for use as a terrace or patio tree for its light, dappled shade and tropical effect. Very fragrant. Excellent for Bonsai.
