    Thats the way it looks to me Philip.I got seeds from up north.It must be for cold weather.It freezes back every yearand needs to be trimed back as it is late commingback each year and it grows taller each year.

    I believe what you have is Albizia lebbeck it's in our database but there is no information entered for it. Albizia lebbeck

    It and the Albizia julibrissin (Mimosa Tree, Silk Tree, Pink Siris) ( which is the most common Mimosa tree grown here) are of the same Genus but different species. It doesn't have the common name of Mimosa but is often referred to as a yellow Mimosa.

    Wow.. that's pretty cool. Sure would have a few folks wondering what happened to the "regular" Mimosa.
