Thanks, you guys. I'm really happy with my collection of rare and exotic plants, and this one is definitely among the crown jewels.

bezevo, not sure about different cultivars, though it's been redesignated from mimosa to acacia somewhere along the way. We haven't tested for alkaloid concentrations on any of my trees. Appears that the seeds are viable, though. I'm putting more effort toward seedlings now that the tree has been setting seeds for a couple months. I had just been propagating cuttings up till this point.

...also, bezevo, the USDA zone for these to survive well outdoors is minimum zone 9. I live in a zone 10 area. Nice and warm!

The past few days have seen a gradual awakening. New seedlings

Not sure yet if there is a morning glory sprouting there in the one pot, or maybe alamo vine...877adaffbb465c5a8047330b9109dbf7.jpgaec5d599e1b20c27ed91a66272becf7d.jpgb89fe5e5ad3c98cabccbcef8d6b1134a.jpg
