This native Mimosa is a prostrate deciduous groundcover with compound feathery leaves. It is vigorous and will cover bare areas with attractive foliage punctuated by erect 10 inch stems bearing marshmallow size pink powderpuff flowers. Found from Florida to Texas, it is little-known in cultivation but very ornamental. It should be planted in a sunny spot free from other vegetation. Soil tolerant but good on heavy low ground.
USDA Hardiness Zone 8-10
