Yes Artsy...the sad reality...:( I have been scouring the web & have found the same bad news...( great link once again! from hipfunkyfun) all the symptons are those of this disease...On the upside the tree is almost 20 years old & this is considered a long life for a Mimosa. Another downside is that we transferred 2 to my yard. The fungas responsible for the disease is transferred via the earth & travels through the roots. SO mine will be sure to have it also:( Shame, such beautiful trees when in bloom. We also learned that we must burn any & all fo the tree that is removed so that the cycle doesn't continue by it rotting into the earth. Geez, who knew???:( Thanks to both of you for your help!
