Though I had this mimosa for years, I never knew the name. Blossoms were pink. Can you name it? I'd like to add to the database. These are the current options

This is my tree.

Thanks, Ferenc, but I no longer have the tree. Sad It really was gorgeous, though, for a long time. My Mom's friend started that tree for me from seed, and we grew it in a pot inside the house for it's beginning in life.

But thanks so much to you and Jay for the confirmation on ID. I'll add it to the database.

Just a reminder here to all of us to try & remember to close the thread when a positive ID has been made. That way people aren't trying to ID something that has already been ID'd. They will see that from the main list & not waste their time only to find out an ID has been made.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

I tend to do that also. The other day I did it & then later remembered & had to remember (again) to go back in & do it.
