Ornamentals–Mimosa Tree

Mimosa [Albizia julibrissin]

The Mimosa tree produces beautiful pink feathery bloom show from mid spring through early summer (late April through June in central Texas). The pictured tree was planted from seed 2 years ago and is  still small enough for me to take this picture from the top! Mimosa grows rapidly but does not live long (about 20 years) so it is not always intentionally included in the landscape. The  hummingbirds  love this tree, so add a feeder or two—and a bench to view the birds and the fluffy pink plumes!
