|Acacia farnesiana, Mimosa farnesiana|
Yellow Mimosa, Sweet Wattle
Origin: Tropical America
This is a bushy shrub that can be trained in a handsome small tree. It blooms with canary yellow powder puffs, sweetly fragrant.
Location:Stevinson, CA. USA
It can get cold here.... Often frost to freeze , 30 degrees, but also sometimes 17- 20 degrees. So it's important for me to know zone recommendations... I can't find them on your descriptions. I'd order a lot more if they were available. |
I wanted to know about the Sweet Acacia...says can take "some freezing"...but what does that mean? Will it grow in my Central California conditions?
It is called 'Bubool' tree ('bub' pronounced as in bubblegum and 'ool' as in wool) in Hindi language.Flowers have a strong sweet fragrance and are like tiny pompoms. This tree is thorny and is often found growing in arid regions of North west India.These regions do get cold at night being the desert area but probably do not have frost in the areas where the trees grow. It is a valuable source of timber and villagers use it to make fires for cooking and keeping warm.It loses most of the leaves in winters.|
There is a popular saying which translates into- 'you can not expect Mango if you sow a Babool tree.'
Basically 'you reap what you sow or if you do bad karma, you do not expect good outcome.'
Location:Aurora, IL, USA
