Help identifying this tree

Post by paboxcall » August 6th, 2018, 9:47 pm

What is this tree? Found it this evening on a drive here in Pennsylvania, however the property owner was new, and didn't know what it was. I have never seen anything like this. The property owner did say they thought the tree might be from "down south." Can someone help? Smelled like we were standing among 1,000 roses. Very fragrant.

Thanks for the help!

Thanks! It may be the most beautiful tree I've ever seen.

I had a yellow mimosa in my front yard in Florida. Messy trees. And I couldn't find where to tap it for the drinks.

Evasive plant like the Bradford Pear. They can cause a mess of problems.

Only one tree more invasive in these parts is the Chinese Tallow. Gil

Looks like the yellow isn't as hardy. And if you ever would figure how to tap that tree, you're gonna be a gazillionaire George!

Man that's nice. You need one of those. You should also plant some wisteria in with it. And add a little kudzu for a nice ground cover. Gorgeous. :thumbup: :twisted: :thumbup: :angel4:

Mimosa is in my top five of most hated trees w/ Bradford Pear, Lombardi Poplar, Virginia Pine, and Honey Locust.

We had some pretty cold spells (for Tampa)over the years & a lot of the limbs & branches always died. It was a real PIA tree & it didn't
bother me a bit when it died.

A late friend's father was county agent in Tallapoosa County, Alabama. He is credited with introducing kudzu in the county as ground cover to control erosion. If he weren't dead for years he would soon be. Agronomists agree that the best way to remove it from your land is to sell your land so that it will no longer be your land.

We had one on the property when I bought it - it lasted one summer before it met up with a chainsaw- man they are dirty
