This tree has erupted in bloom all over Los Angeles. It is commonly known as Mimosa or Silktree. It has finely divided compound leaves that give the foliage a “ferny” look and it has delicate, pink, “powderpuff-like” flowers. The blooms will continue throughout the summer. It does well in poor soil and hot temperatures. My own photos are not as impressive as some others I’ve found on the internet so don’t be shy about Googling the botanical name to see more, and more beautiful, pictures. Then look for it around town as you’re out and about.
