Answer: Mimosa, or Silk Trees, are lovely trees with fine-textured leaves and powder-puff looking flowers. They thrive in full sunshine to part shade and appreciate rich, well-drained soil. You can transplant your Mimosa's when the weather cools in the fall months. If you plant them now, they may be overcome by the combination of heat and shock from transplanting. Cooler fall temperatures and natural rainfall will help your new plants make the transition from the containers to the ground and they'll become established by next spring.
