Question: 45-5201
I have a Mimosa in a container. Can I plant it outdoors? Dick, Warwick, RI

Mort's Answer:
No problem. Container stock can be planted any time. In the summer it will require more watering to get it started in the new soil. M. spegazzini will need protection from the north wind. Originally, it was thought to be hardy only in sub tropical areas. It has survived in areas near the ocean and sometimes further inland in RI. I would protect it with a screen as recommended for the Abutilon in Georgia.
