I love the plant would it grow in zone 7-8 in the Willamette Valley of Oregon.
Love the color OH! how big do they get.
Our coldest temps in winter get to maybe 25 and some snow.Lots of rain too.

On another I wish when people ask questions they would be a bit more specific on where
they live because what we can do in zone 7 in Oregon might work for someone in another part of
the country that is also zone 7.
Happy gardening

Hmmm...maybe?
From a plant care site: In zone 8, frost kills the stems of the plant to the ground, but they return each spring.

Thanks, I had a small green house a few years back I'd built. The daughter and her crew moved back for a while and closed it in for storage. I do like to see things grow from nothing.

I'm in zone 9a so not likely. But, we get below 25 at times. I nearly lost 4 lemon trees to a hard freeze 3 or 4 years ago. They were so damaged in fact I should have scrapped them. Still waiting for them to produce again. The Pride of Barbados range 6-8' from all I've seen. They survived temps down to maybe 27F this last winter. Sustained freezing temps would do them in most likely.

I'd bet the Esperanza's would survive. I cut those back every year. They're very hardy.

Are you sure there are mimosa seedlings in there? They don't look like my mimosa seedlings.

Absolutely! The true leaves may have looked somewhat different but this V is same as mine look now.

I just took and uploaded these photos of Mimosa next to POB. Now these seedlings are likely stunted as they were started sometime near end of last summer or later. They were wintered indoors with an occasional day outdoors. As you can see they're remarkably similar.

Not trying to be argumentative, but SATS56, those look quite different from every picture of mimosa seedlings online, and even very different from the google linked picture you posted.

Every one I have seen looks like this:

Well that pic is too small for me to make out. I think I know what they depict. Anything is possible but I can say I gathered the pods for each separately. I marked and bagged all the seed separately. Marked all the pots/cans. I potted at least 3 -4 dozen off the 2 types. I lost a few over the winter. I can't believe all of one or the other died and only the other survived. I appreciate both of your posts and I'm puzzled for sure. I do recall early on seeing a more frond looking one or two. As I said these have been in and out of sight for a good period of time. That's about all I can say until they mature. They're not exactly thriving.

Luvvarkansas and ChessieMom I think I'm gonna be very disappointed. You're probably both correct and I'm gonna be without a Mimosa this year. I'll not continue trying to explain what could have happened. I think I have only 11 seedlings left. I may have to go out later looking for more seeds from the invasive mimosa. Maybe they only grow when you don't want them to.

So in other words......you have a whole lot of seedlings of your Pride of Barbados? Well...as disappointed as you are......you are blessed as well, because those are gorgeous plants!

You know, it easily done, isn't it? The older I get, the more disciplined I have to be about labeling! Hahaha I did.....I DID label this year, in the rounds of seed planting that I did. The trouble? Once I started putting plants out in the garden, I ended up with a 1/2 a 6-pack here, 1/2 a 6-pack there, but lost the labels. LOL Now.....I have cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower seedlings here and there, which will be "suprises"...of course, until they get a wee bit older.

I've got a few ? pumpkins a few ? squash. LOL We'll find out which is which, when they grow a little more...almost makes it like a mystery garden.
