    This one is incredible Jean, I have never seen one of these plants before.

  • Cal, this plant is a Mimosa Tree. It is a small tree that was introduced to the USA in 1745 as an ornamental. Now it is considered an invasive species but many people still enjoy them in their yards. This one grows wild next to the parking area of where I go to shop. The foliage is beautiful, the blooms are great beauties, aren’t they? And the perfume is almost overwhelming at times. Very Fragrant! The trees grow fast and, for a tree, they don’t live long lives.

    Oh interesting, I have seen another species of the Mimosa Tree in Spain, it has little yellow flowers that are a bit like a pussy willow. It too has an incredible perfume.

  • I have only seen pictures and read about the yellow flowered mimosa and many other varieties of this amazingly beautiful tree. This pink one is scattered far and wide and here in my neck of the woods, it blooms in July. Next time that you head down to the South or near Atlanta, I’m sure you can see one, or groups of them!

    Oops, I forgot and added a comment instead of choosing reply. I see my mistake now, 13 days later, and so I fix it. Pardon my oops, please!
