Mimosa Tree Not Budding Out - Knowledgebase Question

Question by radical5

Last spring early, I planted a Mimosa Tree (Albizia julibrissin 'Rosea') in my yard and had wonderful results from it despite the hot and dry summer conditions last year where I live. Around October the tree started going dormant and we did have somewhat of a hard winter here this last year. It is now late April and the tree is not showing any signs of coming out of dormancy. When I scratch the trunk of the tree with my fingernail about half way down to the ground or more, it will show a pale green, but above that on the trunk, it is not showing anything. What my question is should I think about replacing this tree as I really want one and love them, or wait a bit more since I have heard many say that they are really late in coming out in spring.

Hang in there! What you've heard is true. In your area they may not leaf out until late May/Early June. I hope your tree does as well this year as last!
