The Cheerful Mimosa

2 min

The Mimosa, also known as the Acacia Mimosa, is not only a beautiful ornamental tree but also a beloved cut flower among florists. Or rather, we should say cut branches. With its graceful yellow flowering branches, the Mimosa brings a touch of spring and joy to any arrangement. Let's delve deeper into this delightful, cheerful yellow flower and discover what makes the Mimosa so special.

Different types of Mimosa

There are several types of Mimosa cut branches available to florists, each with their own unique characteristics and charm. The most common variety is the Acacia Baileyana. This variety is known for its striking blue-green leaves and fluffy, yellow flowers. It adds a cheerful, spring-like touch to bouquets and arrangements.

When is the Mimosa available?

The Mimosa is primarily available as a cut flower or branch in spring, from around February to April, when the trees are in bloom and the branches are filled with beautiful yellow flowers. Flower shops can then enjoy an abundance of Mimosa branches to add to their bouquets and arrangements, giving them a touch of color and vibrancy.

The origin of Mimosa

The Mimosa is native to Australia and was introduced to Europe around the 19th century. Now, the Mimosa grows abundantly in warm European countries, such as Italy, where the shrub can grow into a tree up to 25 meters high!

Beginning of spring with Mimosa

The Mimosa is often associated with spring due to its flowering period in the spring, making it a symbol of renewal, joy, and renewed energy. Its bright yellow flowers bring a sense of warmth and optimism, making them perfect for celebrating the arrival of the new season.

Mimosa as a symbol of women

In many countries, especially in Italy and Russia, it is common to give Mimosa flowers to women as a sign of respect, appreciation, and solidarity. The Mimosa is often associated with International Women's Day, celebrated annually on March 8th.

In the early 20th century, women in Italy and Russia began wearing Mimosa flowers during Women's Day demonstrations and celebrations as a symbol of female solidarity and the struggle for equal rights. The delicate flowers of the Mimosa were chosen for their bright yellow color and their ability to symbolize spring, while simultaneously representing a powerful symbol of hope and empowerment.

Since then, Mimosa has become an iconic symbol of Women's Day and is globally associated with the celebration of women's achievements and rights, as well as the ongoing struggle for gender equality and empowerment.
