Albizia julibrissin Mimosa, Silk Tree origin: first imported from China 1745
It's that time of year again - mimosa time! No, not the orange juice kind, the tree kind!
The blooms aren't as profuse as they usually are, but the fragrance is super strong! This poor tree is so crowded by the gigantic oak tree in my back yard, but it keeps faithfully blooming every year. I can't bear the thought of cutting it down and not having these lovely blooms every spring that remind me of my grandparents' trees.
