Mimosa: Albizia julibrissin


Albizia julibrissin



Mimosa trees are non-native to Maryland and are considered invasive. They grow quickly and displace native trees and shrubs. They spread easily by seeds.

Interestingly, mimosa trees will slowly close their leaves at night and when it rains the leaflets droop down.
