The mimosa tree hails from Asia and the Middle East and features exotic-looking flowers and fern-like leaves. This tree was introduced to the United States in 1745 by the well-known botanist André Michaux.
Mimosa trees are hardy and can tolerate a range of temperatures.
They are typically grown in USDA hardiness zones 6 through 9, which have average annual minimum temperatures of -10°F to 20°F (-23°C to -6.7°C).
Mimosa trees can tolerate various humidity levels but generally prefer moderate to high humidity. The tree may struggle to thrive in dry air or low humidity areas and require additional watering to prevent stress and damage.
