My kids and I visited a public garden recently and we saw a really interesting plant that was not labelled. They want me to buy one for our garden but I don't know what it is called. It had fern-like leaves that when you touch them, they fold up. The flowers looked like small pink cotton balls. Any ideas? I didn't think to take a picture of it.
If you decide to intentionally plant a mimosa please be warned that you will eventually have babies growing in your lawn, garden, neighbours yards/gardens, etc. We have a few in the neighbourhood and the little ones are taking over my garden. They grow fast here and are prolific. I always thought they were beautiful and loved the look of them but am starting to dislike them since they're a bad weed here.
Good point! They are not weedy at all where we live.
Find out, for sure, before you plant.
