January 4, 2020

Location: Private residence, Blountston

This is Sunshine Mimosa
It can be spread through cuttings or seeds
It is host plant to the Little Sulphur butterfly
And it's pollinated by bees.

Look closely at the Google map screen shot. Our amazing friends Karen and Travis build a labyrinth in their back yard, you can see it on the right hand side of the screen shot. This Sunshine Mimosa was right smack in the center of the Labyrinth. Too cool for words.
