Fragrant mimosa (Mimosa borealis)
Fragrant mimosa is a deciduous shrub with small, pretty leaves and beautiful, scented, pink fuzzy flowers. It is very thorny, so plant away from high traffic areas. It provides a good nectar source for bees and butterflies. It is very drought tolerant and can take extreme heat and harsh conditions once established.
