Every Southern landscape requires mimosa. We were late in acquiring it, because such old-fashioned items are not always easy to find. Plus, the first effort to get one started failed. But this mimosa, which was planted just last fall, is blooming for the first time. It’s in a chicken-wire cage to protect it from the deer. It will be safe from the deer after it’s tall enough.

    Mimosa trees were quite common several years ago. Our next door neighbor had two large ones in their yard. They made a great shade canopy to place chairs under pre-air conditioning. I grew up 40 miles from my present home and just don’t recall the level of high temperatures and humidity we have now during the summer months now.

    Is this the same tee that it’s fruit is used for Mimosa salad?
