Mimosa, Sensitive Plant
One of the most unusual plants grown, this annual will reach a height of about 12". Its fern-like leaves are decorative and unusual. When touched, the leaves fold together and stems fold down. Recovery is prompt and the action can be repeated many times without harm.
Fun to grow! Leaves quickly fold up and droop when touched. They return to their usual tropical appearance after a short time. Makes for an attractive garden, container, or indoor plant. Sensitive Plant blooms with puff-ball pink flowers.

Very intriguing plant discovered in Brazil. Ornamental pinnate leaves close when touched. Very tough but you must be careful not to “tickle-to-death.” Lilac-pink spherical flowers precede the production of seedpods. Excellent for container growing and greenhouse sales.
