4" Mimosa

Regular price $21.99

Mimosa, also known as Sensitive Plant, can easily catch anyone’s attention with its unique and captivating features. The prickly tropical and creeping shrub is a fun houseplant to have – especially when you have kids around! The leaves may look plain and simple, but they definitely are worthy of recognition. Each leaf features feather-like fronds that respond to touch or other movements by rapidly folding inward and drooping. Thus, the nicknames Sensitive Plant and Shame Plant. The plant also features small fluffy pink or purple flowers.
