Mimosa (Albizia julibrissin)
The Mimosa is a gorgeous flat-topped deciduous tree that brings a special rain forest effect to the Sonoran desert. The very hardy and heat loving Mimosa is ideal wherever a full, dense canopy is desired during the summer months. The deciduous nature of the Mimosa allows for maximum shade and protection in the summer, and allows the landscape sunlight during winter, letting your landscape breathe during ideal growing temperatures.
The Mimosa is known for its vibrant pink flower bloom in late spring and gives a very seasonal feeling that’s truly unique in the West. Mimosas are an ideal tree due to their hardiness, size, expansive canopy, and gorgeous display.
