Mimosa Tree Perhaps ~ JFF Flora

I brought back a few plants from my Dad’s after he passed away. I am trying my best to keep them growing. This one was a surprise that started growing out of another pot. I replanted it in this pot and it seems to be taking off. Now I need to know what it is so I can plant it in the right spot in my yard. Looks to me like maybe a Mimosa? The leaves actually close up when disturbed and at night. I know that is what the Mimosa is known for. I am asking for suggestions as to what you think. And do you think it is strange to have the sprout from underneath another plant? I thought it was a weed. Maybe it is. But hopefully someone can help me out. I included a photo of a Mimosa for comparison. It would be so cool to have anything growing in my yard that was my Dad’s.

I am entering this to Kim’s August challenge titled Flora and Fauna.

  1. Looks like mimosa to me. It is what we call a “volunteer” — a plant that comes up on its own unexpectedly. I have a nice pink oleander that came to me that way…presumably by a bird flying overhead with the seed in its beak.

    • I sure hope so. It would be so cool to have one of my Dad’s trees. I have heard of that but could not figure this one out. He never had mimosa trees and all of his trees had been at his home for over 50 years.
