Mimosa as bonsai

Known for its eruption of flowers in the spring the mimosa can make an attractive flowering bonsai.

The mimosa was brought to the US from parts of Persia and Asia in the 1700s and became popular in many southern states.

The large fernlike leaves give this tree a feminine graceful look. We recommend this drought tolerant bonsai be grown outdoors in full sun in USDA zones 6-9. Learn more about this mimosa silk tree.
