Deliciously scented!

Mimosa (Acacia dealbata) has fluffy, fragrant flower heads that smell rather like violets. Mimosa is an ideal plant for the patio or decking, although it will need to be protected from frost in winter. Even after the flowering period the attractive grey-green foliage provides additional decorative interest!

Planting+
Mimosa will thrive in the garden or in a planter. Read the maintenance tips about getting it through the winter and choose the best method to suit you. Mimosa in the garden Choose a sheltered spot in full sun or light shade - perhaps against a sunny wall. Make sure the root ball of the mimosa is moistened well. Prepare a large hole, loosen the soil with a fork and improve poor soil. Acacia will thrive in well-drained, fairly humus rich soil so add some potting compost to sandy soil and sharp sand with some potting compost to clay soil. If you want to plant it in the garden, do this in the spring. This allows the plant to develop a decent root system and the mimosa will be better prepared for the winter.
Care+
Water Acacai dealbata regularly - the soil can stay fairly moist. Do not overfeed - plants fed sparingly will survive better through the winter! The plants then form more compact tissue, which reduces the risk of frost damage. Young plants are best supported with a sturdy cane. After flowering this small tree can be cut back fairly hard, although this is not strictly necessary. If cut back by about 1/3 the acacia will branch out nicely. Prune any (frost damaged growth) dead wood in the spring. You can give your mimosa the appearance of a shrub by pruning the leading (top) shoots.

This evergreen tree from South Australia and Tasmania brings an exotic look to your garden. The delicate pinnate leaves are especially beautiful all year. The leaves stay green in the winter and remain on the plant. The flowers smell deliciously sweet. In the garden this lovely tree, in European gardens, after 10 years can reach a height of 4 metres - in a planter this will be about 2.5 metres. Acacia dealbata belongs in the Fabaceae or Leguminosae family as well as the sub-genre Mimosoidae.
