Mimosa (Acacia dealbata)
Charming branches from postcards that our grandfathers presented to our grandmothers as a sign of love and respect, are still one of the main symbols of the spring arrival in many countries.
Unceremoniously borrowing the name from a more "shamefaced" fluffy plant, Acacia dealbata annually beautify lots of events, from small office celebrations of the International Women's Day to grand carnivals in major cities of Italy and France.
Usually these branches are added to "yellow" bouquets of daffodils and tulips, "split" the combination of contrasting colors or hyacinths or irises either presented as mono-bouquets. And if the "armful of mimosa" - a gesture rather wide, but not very original, the combination of, for example, tender white daisies with a small yellow buds will make the recipient never question again about the feelings of the flowers giver.
