The Q&A Archives: Mimosa Tree Looks Dead

Question: Last spring I bought 2 Mimosa trees for my front yard. They started growing very well but in late November or Early December all the leaves fell off. Is this normal or are the trees dead??


Answer: Albizia julibrissin, the silk or mimosa tree, is deciduous, meaning it will lose its leaves during the winter months. Your tree should develop new leaves this spring, followed by fluffy, pink flowers. Enjoy your trees!
