More Details

The Ombrella Mimosa Tree, scientifically known as Albizia julibrissin 'Boubri', is renowned for its distinctive umbrella-shaped canopy and vibrant, deep pink blooms. This cultivar is a standout for its striking appearance and compact, controlled growth, making it ideal for residential landscapes and smaller garden spaces. The fluffy, fragrant pink flowers appear prolifically from early to mid-summer, attracting pollinators and providing a stunning visual display. The fern-like, bright green foliage adds a tropical feel, enhancing its decorative appeal throughout the growing season.

Growth rate: Moderate growth rate; typically reaches 20-25 feet in height with a similar spread.

Please note: Images on our website depict plants and trees at full maturity to showcase their expected grown characteristics. These images are illustrative examples only and do not represent the size of plants or trees upon delivery.

Pruning: Prune in late winter to early spring to maintain shape and remove any damaged or overly dense branches. This helps preserve the tree’s structural integrity and aesthetic form.

Fertilization: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in early spring to support healthy growth and vibrant flowering.

Winter Protection: Generally hardy in its specified zones, but mulching around the base can help protect the roots in the colder parts of its range.


Choose a location that receives full sun to partial shade with well-draining soil. Dig a hole twice as wide and as deep as the root ball. Place the tree in the hole, ensuring the root crown is at soil level. Backfill with soil, water thoroughly, and apply a layer of mulch to help retain soil moisture and protect the root zone.

Water regularly during the first growing season to establish a deep and extensive root system. Once established, the tree is relatively drought-tolerant, requiring only occasional deep watering during prolonged dry periods. Best performance is achieved in full sun, where the tree receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily. This maximizes flower production and maintains the health of the foliage. It can tolerate partial shade, but flowering may be reduced.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Ombrella Mimosa tree typically reaches a mature height of about 20 to 35 feet and has a spread of 20 to 25 feet. Its umbrella-like canopy and graceful branches create a striking silhouette in the landscape. Keep in mind that the actual size of the tree can vary depending on factors such as environmental conditions, soil quality, and pruning practices. Regular pruning can help manage its size and shape while maintaining its health and aesthetic appeal.

The Ombrella Mimosa tree is known for its relatively fast growth rate. Under optimal growing conditions, it can grow at a rate of approximately 2 to 3 feet per year. During the first few years after planting, it may experience even faster growth as it establishes its root system and develops foliage and flowers. However, growth rates can vary depending on factors such as soil quality, sunlight exposure, water availability, and climate conditions. With proper care and maintenance, including regular watering, pruning, and fertilization, you can help maximize the growth potential of the Ombrella Mimosa tree in your landscape.

The best place to plant the Ombrella Mimosa tree is in a location that receives full sun to partial shade. Choose a spot in your landscape that offers plenty of sunlight for optimal growth and flowering. Additionally, ensure the soil is well-draining to prevent waterlogging, as mimosa trees prefer moist but not waterlogged conditions. Avoid planting in areas prone to standing water or poor drainage.

Consider the tree's mature size and shape when selecting a planting location, making sure there is enough space for it to spread out comfortably without overcrowding nearby plants or structures. Keep in mind that mimosa trees can reach heights of 20 to 35 feet and have a spread of 20 to 25 feet, so plant with enough distance from buildings, power lines, and other trees.

Lastly, consider the aesthetic appeal of the tree in your landscape design. The Ombrella Mimosa tree's unique umbrella-like canopy, vibrant foliage, and delicate flowers make it an excellent focal point or accent plant in gardens, borders, or mixed perennial beds.

When planting Ombrella Mimosa trees, space them approximately 20 to 30 feet apart. This spacing allows each tree ample room to spread out as it grows, ensuring proper air circulation, sunlight exposure, and root development. Additionally, maintaining adequate spacing between trees helps prevent overcrowding and competition for resources, promoting healthier growth and overall tree vitality.

Caring for the Ombrella Mimosa tree involves several key practices:

Sunlight: Plant the tree in a location that receives full sun to partial shade. Mimosa trees thrive in bright, sunny conditions but can tolerate some shade.

Watering: During the establishment period (usually the first 1-2 years after planting), water the tree deeply once or twice per week to help it establish a strong root system. After establishment, water during prolonged dry spells to maintain soil moisture levels.

Soil: Plant the tree in well-draining soil. While it can tolerate various soil types, moderately fertile, moist soil is ideal for optimal growth.

Pruning: Prune the tree in late winter or early spring to remove dead or damaged branches and shape the tree as desired. This encourages new growth and helps maintain a healthy, attractive appearance.

Fertilization: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in spring to provide essential nutrients for healthy growth. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for application rates.

Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the tree to conserve moisture, suppress weed growth, and improve soil health. Leave a gap between the mulch and the trunk to prevent rot and pest issues.

Pest and Disease Management: Monitor the tree regularly for signs of pests, such as mimosa webworms, and diseases, such as powdery mildew. Treat any pest or disease issues promptly.

By following these care guidelines, you can help ensure the Ombrella Mimosa tree thrives and remains a beautiful addition to your landscape.

Watering frequency for the Ombrella Mimosa tree depends on various factors, including soil moisture, weather conditions, and the tree's stage of growth. Here are some general guidelines:

Establishment Period: During the first 1-2 years after planting, water the tree deeply once or twice per week. Ensure the soil remains consistently moist but not waterlogged to help the tree establish a strong root system.

After Establishment: Once the tree is established, usually after the first 1-2 years, adjust watering frequency based on weather conditions. Water the tree deeply during prolonged dry spells or drought conditions to maintain soil moisture levels.

Monitor Soil Moisture: Regularly check the soil moisture level around the tree. Water when the top few inches of soil feel dry to the touch, but avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot and other issues.

Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the tree to help retain soil moisture, suppress weed growth, and regulate soil temperature. Leave a gap between the mulch and the trunk to prevent rot and pest issues.

Rainfall: Take natural rainfall into account when determining watering frequency. Adjust irrigation accordingly to avoid waterlogging the soil.

By following these watering guidelines and monitoring soil moisture levels, you can help ensure the health and vitality of your Ombrella Mimosa tree.

The Ombrella Mimosa tree thrives in warm, temperate climates, particularly those with long, hot summers. It prefers full sun exposure to partial shade and well-draining soil. While it can tolerate a range of soil types, including sandy or clay soils, it generally performs best in moderately fertile, moist soil. This tree is also somewhat drought tolerant once established but benefits from regular watering, especially during periods of extended dryness. It's important to note that the Ombrella Mimosa tree may not be suitable for regions with extremely cold winters, as it is not frost tolerant. Therefore, it's best suited for USDA hardiness zones 6 to 9.

The Ombrella Mimosa tree typically blooms once per year, usually during the summer months. Its flowering period can vary slightly depending on factors such as local climate conditions and the health of the tree. However, when in bloom, the tree produces profuse clusters of delicate, pink, powder puff-like flowers that adorn its branches, adding beauty and charm to the landscape.

The Ombrella Mimosa tree boasts several unique features that set it apart:

Distinctive Foliage: Its foliage is characterized by a vibrant green color and a unique umbrella-like canopy, giving it a striking appearance in the landscape.

Abundant Blooms: The tree produces profuse clusters of delicate, pink, powder puff-like flowers during the summer months, adding a pop of color and attracting pollinators to the garden.

Compact Growth Habit: Unlike some other varieties of mimosa trees, the Ombrella Mimosa tree tends to have a more compact growth habit, making it suitable for smaller gardens or urban landscapes where space is limited.

Tolerance to Heat and Drought: This variety of mimosa tree is known for its tolerance to heat and drought once established, making it a resilient choice for gardens in warmer climates.

Adaptability: The Ombrella Mimosa tree is adaptable to various soil types and environmental conditions, making it relatively low-maintenance once established in the landscape.

Overall, the Ombrella Mimosa tree is prized for its unique foliage, abundant blooms, compact growth habit, and adaptability, making it a popular choice for gardeners looking to add beauty and interest to their outdoor spaces.

Several factors may contribute to the Ombrella Mimosa tree not blooming:

Sunlight: Ensure the tree receives adequate sunlight. Mimosa trees typically require full sun to bloom profusely. Lack of sunlight can hinder flowering.

Age: Consider the age of the tree. Younger trees may take a few years to establish before blooming heavily. Be patient, as it's natural for it to take some time for the tree to reach maturity and produce abundant blooms.

Pruning: Mimosa trees bloom on new wood, so improper pruning practices, such as heavy pruning in late spring or early summer, can remove potential flowering branches. Prune the tree in late winter or early spring to encourage new growth and flowering.

Soil Moisture: Mimosa trees prefer moist, well-drained soil. Inconsistent watering or waterlogged soil can stress the tree and inhibit flowering. Ensure the soil is kept consistently moist but not waterlogged.

Nutrient Deficiency: A lack of essential nutrients, particularly phosphorus, can affect flowering. Consider fertilizing the tree with a balanced fertilizer in spring to promote healthy growth and blooming.

Environmental Stress: Environmental factors such as extreme temperatures, drought, or pollution can stress the tree and reduce flowering. Ensure the tree is adequately protected from adverse conditions.

Pest or Disease Infestation: Check the tree for signs of pest infestation or disease, as these can weaken the tree and impact flowering. Treat any pest or disease issues promptly.

By addressing these factors, you can encourage blooming in your Ombrella Mimosa tree and enjoy its beautiful flowers in your landscape.
