This very large-flowered mimosa clearly is a more robust species of sensitive plant (Mimosa pudica) and does fold up its leaves when touched. Its candy-pink coloured flowers appear in August and September. The plant is heat-tolerant, loves direct sun and is best positioned in a window facing west or south. Fully matured it reaches heights between 25 to 30 cm representing a change when planted in flower borders or in a pot on the summer porch. Especially kids do love the plant, because it doesn’t get tired after being touched many times, but keeps on growing strongly.
