Fragrant Mimosa is a deciduous, small shrub, 3 by 3 feet, with somewhat zigzag, rigid branches with small, delicate pinnately compound leaves. The soft pink puffballs are a contrast to the sneaky, strongly recurved thorns up and down the branches.

An excellent plant for a xeriscape garden, Fragrant Mimosa can be planted in a garden with a desert theme, in rocky, sunny areas or as a backdrop. It will also tolerate partial shade. It makes a great background shrub.
