Answer: If your Mimosa is getting full sunshine, adequate water, and not too much fertilizer, it should bloom each spring. If it has never bloomed but otherwise looks healthy, it may be too young to flower. Some trees and shrubs take quite a while to mature to the point where they can support flowers yet continue to grow. Give your tree a little more time and it should perform as expected. If you regularly fertilze your butterfly bush, lilies and roses, your tree may be getting an overdose of nitrogen, which could result in lots of foliage, at the expense of flowers. Eventually the tree will adjust and put its energy into flower production, but until then, it may just put on lots of new growth. Best wishes with your Mimosa!
