The mimosa is a flower easily recognizable by its bright and intense yellow color.
But in addition to its striking colour, the mimosa is also highly appreciated from an olfactory point of view. This makes it an ideal flower, as an ornament and to give your garden an unmistakable fragrance. It is therefore not surprising that it is widely used to make perfume.
In addition to decorating gardens and courtyards, mimosa is also highly valued in florists’ shops for making delicate and beautiful natural bouquets.
If you decide to plant one at home, make sure it gets enough light and don’t water it too abundantly.
On the other hand, if you put it in a vase, you will have to change the water daily.
However, keep in mind that even if you give it all the care it needs, the mimosa is a flower with a relatively short lifespan, although many people claim that it maintains the same charm once it becomes a dry flower.
Curiosities about mimosas
To sum up, let’s tell you some curiosities that you probably didn’t know about it:
- The mimosa is one of the symbols of the Blue Coast with its greatest representation in Mandelieu-La Naupole, the International Capital of the Mimosa. Every year, this city celebrates a big party in its honor. For more than a week, every corner is tinted yellow and its streets are filled with fairs and celebrations with the mimosa as the center of everything.
- As the story goes, this flower was brought to France by James Cook, who brought it from Australia.
- As we said before, it is a flower full of symbolism but… do you really know what it means? The mimosa is the symbol of friendship, magnificence, elegance and tenderness.
