The Q&A Archives: male/female trees

Question: Are mimosa trees male and female? And if so, how do you tell one from the other?

Answer: The flowers on mimosa trees can be bisexual, or at least some flowers are unisexual; with male and female flowers on different plants. Monrovia grows mimosa from cuttings rather than from seeds so you can be assured you'll get a female (which bears more flowers) if you purchase Monrovia stock.
