It is a shrub or small tree that loves the Mediterranean climate, and should be planted out in a sunny place, protected from the wind and the winter frosts, and if you live in an area with very cold winters you should position your mimosa near the house, or in winter cover it over with non-woven fabric. Watering should be fairly regular and abundant during the summer, and especially in the case of plants grown in pots or in the event of prolonged drought.
Avoid watering too much, but whenever the soil is dry water for a few days. From March to September mix specific fertilizer for flowering plants into the irrigating water. Mimosas donít grow very fast, and generally do not require pruning, which is done only by removing any branches that have been damaged by bad weather, or after flowering, by shortening the branches that are too thin.
