We had a mimosa in our courtyard in France, about 12 feet away from the house. The problem was not the root spread, but the spread of the branches which reached the hal wall in just 6 years. The tree itself had grown to 20foot high. Don't forget the mimosa is essentially a weed. Here in England my 6ft mimosa dealbata has frozen this year to a rich brown. I can't tell whether it will sprout again or not. I'm sure I'm not the only one. Should I cut it all back?
