woah very nice flower. does it grow as a shrub plant?
How big did your plant get before it flowered? Mine is growing as multiple branches, and is probably in total over 5 feet across.... not to mention evil when I back into all those thorns!!
Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
Hey thanks for your information!
Because they form seeds rather rare over here.
Anyone happen to grow a mimosa plant with yellow flower one?my grow up to 1.3 meter tall months back.
I was really surprise with that giant size.
I got my seeds at the Dollar Tree. It is large now and in the back corner of my greenhouse. It gets down to 50 F at night. The leaves seem to be permanently folded up but not yellowing. I just noticed the package says "Leaves close when touched, cold or put in the dark". Good to know!
i think i have a relative of this plant growing outside my house. the leaves are similar shaped and react quickly to touch. it overwinters just fine since its wild.
My 2 big mimosa are 'dormant' right now, indoor, with no leaves at all, but the sterm remain green/purple, like each year. Next april i will put them back under the sun and high relative humidity, and the growth will resume.
