Persian Silk Tree
SHOWY SCENTED FLOWER - DELICATE FERN LEAVES - FAST GROWING
Ornamental pink silk blossoms appear between June-September on this fast growing Asian delight. Simple to grow, Mimosa tolerates many types of soil and weather conditions and is hardy to -15 degrees, while thriving under the full heat of the sun. Acting as a butterfly, hummingbird and bee magnet, Mimosa seeds and leaves will keep your garden wildlife feed and happy throughout the summer months. As the cool of the evening sets in your Persian Silk Tree will fold up her lacy fern leaves for a long night's rest. Mimosa leaves will also close when touched or when raining.
