The Q&A Archives: Is my Ombrella Mimosa Tree still alive?

Question: Last Summer I bought 3 Ombrella Mimosa trees. It is now April 20th and the trees look like dead sticks planted in the ground. When do these trees usually start to get folliage? We did have a late frost, but I thought that this type of Mimosa tree is hardy in our area. My zip code is 98258 in WA state. If they are still alive how long do I have to wait until leaves appear?

Answer: Mimosa trees are reluctant to leaf out until the weather gets warm. I expect you'll begin to see new foliage within the next 2-3 weeks. Your patience will be rewarded.
