Albizia julibrissin, the mimosa tree is a memory maker in the right location. It’s not for all locations and I’ll touch on that in a bit. But, if you want to party in the summer like it’s 1999, this tree could hold memories of your debauchery and summertime fun outdoors.
If you’re a modest tree who feels bashful loosing your leaves each winter, forget feeling awkward cause you look great! Some trees look exceptional in their birthday suits: Stout or slender trunks giving way to beautiful course branches that lead to finer and finer branches and twigs.
A few years ago I witnessed the falling of a street tree in my San Francisco neighborhood. It felt crazy and surreal, right out of a Hitchcock movie. How could this be?
