The Q&A Archives: mimosa tree

Question: I planted a Mimosa tree this summer. It has now lost all it's leaves. It is totally barren. Do you think it has died or is this normal. It's in the front of our house, so if you think it has died I will replace it. I purchased it in Atascadero which has a different climate from San Luis Obispo, but I know I've seen them growing around here as well as Atascadero. Thank you for your help.

Answer: Mimosa trees are deciduous, meaning they naturally lose their leaves in late fall and the branches remain bare over the winter months. Before giving up on your tree, wait until spring to see if it leafs out again. I think it will - it's just going through a dormant stage right now.
