Mimosa tree

Asked June 17, 2015, 8:50 PM EDT

I have a very small space in my yard that I need to address. I love Mimosa trees, but a full size would be too large. I'm just wondering if a miniature Mimosa tree exists?

Sangamon County Illinois

We are not aware that a dwarf mimosa tree exists. We wouldn't recommend it even if they did though, in that it is not native to the U.S. and has become an invasive species in many areas.
It would be best to find/search which small trees are native to your area, and come close to the attributes that you admire in the mimosa, and go with that.
A good nursery, your Dept. of Natural Resources, or local conservancy should be able to help you.
