|Design Ideas||Mimosa is a perfect tree for creating quick shade on new homesites in warm climates. Use it to reduce heat island effect from pavement on driveways, parking lots and streetside. An historically correct tree for front or back lawns of Victorian homes. A beautiful accent to Spanish architecture, ranches and Santa Fe designed home. A chameleon that will be equally suited to shading tropical gardens filled with understory exotics.|

|Care||Grows easily in poor to moderately fertile, well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established in the landscape, reduce frequency; tolerates moderate, periodic drought, particularly in coastal regions. In containers, continue to water regularly. Feed in early spring.|
