I found mimosa growing zone as 6-10.
Is zone 5b to much outside this range for outdoor planting?

That would depend on where you are. Every garden has microclimates where it's warmer or colder than the rest of the garden. If you can find a warm place, possibly near paving or cement or protective walls, you might have a chance. Does anyone in your area grow it?

Mimosa (Albizia julibrissin) on USDA site
http://plants.usda.gov/core/pr...
maybe you can find your county on the map and see if it is reported as growing there.

I'm 5b and mimosas are everywhere here. They have no problem surviving and they are planted in the open and in protected areas.
