Mimosa is a real eye-catcher in the bouquet. Find out more information about the so-called silver acacia here.
Botanical name: Acacia dealbata
Plant family: Mimosa family (Mimosoideae)
Our “mimosa” is actually a silver acacia, also known under the name “false mimosa”. Its inflorescence is similar to that of the mimosa and it also comes from the mimosa family. The silver acacia originally has its home in Australia, but is now also at home in many southern countries.
The silver acacia contains many essential oils, which also smell wonderful. The oil is used in perfume production, pharmacy and homeopathy. All-natural mimosa oil is obtained by extraction from the yellow flowers and twigs.
Care tips for mimosa
The silver acacia only needs a fresh cut when it arrives. The silver acacia is very delicate and will shrink and dry out quickly. Nevertheless, it keeps the color and you can combine it with other flowers. So it doesn’t necessarily have to be wet.
At BLOOMY DAYS, it is important to us every week to deliver beautiful flower combinations straight to your home or office. You always have the choice between long-stemmed flowers for the floor vase and short-stemmed flowers for the table vase. Of course, you can also let us surprise you. But you can not only choose the stem length. You also decide whether we can surprise you with fresh flowers weekly, every two weeks or once a month. We’ll take care of everything else for you! The bouquets arrive at your home ready-to-vase – for longer freshness you only have to cut the flowers briefly and put them in a suitable vase with fresh water. And you can look forward to fresh, seasonal cut flowers. We obtain these directly from the field and do not store them temporarily. For this reason, your flowers will keep you fresh for a long time and will give you pleasure for a long time – we give you our word on that!
