Laura, I’ve known you awhile now so I know you’ll take this the right way. Mimosa Trees are beautiful and bloom and bloom again but they drop a lot of old blooms. Tons of seed pods their just absolutely gorgeous especially if their happy get good sun etc. which your great at!!!! Just plant it where all that wont fall on other flowers, etcuntil you see how it grows etc. I see it’s a medium so those might be different. Those guys are tough. I cut one down it keeps coming back. Share its journey

Ok, very good Terri! I've never had one so I need your experience. I was thinking this will go outside in summer but inside or in the greenhouse for winter. But who knows yet? I will watch the seeds so it doesn't take over 🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱 Its just a toy at the moment. Grown men walk by and have to touch it. Quite a novelty here in zone 6 😘💘 @terrimclaughlin

It’ll do well. The seed pods don’t really get into the ground causing more trees they just need to get raked likes fallen leaves! Mine are in the ground and they can handle our winters they grow pretty fast. Maybe 1winter in your greenhouse. It’s surprising how fast they grow but you’ll know. They are beautiful. I’d like a medium over a regular tall one. You’ll be able to see those beautiful blooms. Good choice!! They of course love the sun. I’m curious how big it’ll be in September 2021. ???

This picture is deceiving because it's a used seed holder. This grew lettuce and I stuck a sensitive seed in it and it grew. So it's not really a medium. Its the regular one. I'm so glad to chat with you BB! I'm going to try to grow a couple more of these for our garden club sale. You don't see many around here so they might sell well. Take care! @terrimclaughlin

They are considered aggressive (invasive in TN) so beware the seedlings all over the yard.
