Healthy Mimosa tree seedlings (Albizia julibrissin) starter plugs - with soil/root plugs, not bare root.

Not to be confused with Mimosa pudica, which is also known as "sensitive plant".

This is the tree, also known as Persian Silk Tree, that gets pinkish, pom-pom flowers reminiscent of the beverage by the same name.

Mimosa's fragrant blooms are attractive to bees, butterflies and hummingbirds.

It is also called Lenkoran acacia or bastard tamarind, though it is not too closely related to either.

The species is usually called "silk tree" or "mimosa" in the United States.

Its leaves slowly close during the night and during periods of rain, the leaflets bowing downward.

In Japan its common names are nemunoki, nemurinoki and nenenoki which all mean "sleeping tree".

Suitable for: light (sandy), medium (loamy) and heavy (clay) soils, prefers well-drained soil and can grow in nutritionally poor soil.

Suitable pH: acid, neutral and basic (alkaline) soils and can grow in very alkaline and saline soils.

It prefers dry or moist soil and can tolerate drought.

It cannot grow in the shade. The plant can tolerates strong winds but not maritime exposure.

Traditionally known in China as the "herb of happiness," Albizia julibrissin is one of the most valued Chinese botanicals for supporting a healthy mood.

Mimosa has been traditionally used for centuries to elevate the mood, promote mental and emotional calmness, and support a peaceful night's sleep.

The plug is approximately 1 inch diameter by approximately 2.5 inches tall.

No minimum plant size is guaranteed, but they are typically approximately 1 to 3 inches. These are small, just-started, tree seedlings.

So, please, no complaining that the trees are small. They are starter plugs. They're supposed to be small. (..some people!!)

Don't worry. They grow fast if you give them what they need.

This plant ships green, year-round.

Please watch your tracking information to avoid damage from weather extremes.

Hardiness zones 6 through 9

    I had mimosa plant before and I can say this is not a mimosa, the leaves does not make any movement when you touch them and that is the particularity means of the mimosa
