Sunshine Mimosa

   

 

A close relative of Mimosa pudica, this Florida native flower has been recommended by many counties in Florida as a replacement  for the grass plant  to create  a 'water-conservation' lawn. Imagine a drought-tolerant lawn, with pink flowers, tolerant to foot-traffic, and does not need frequent mowing. This link has recommendation for 'Mimosa strigillosa' for the lawn:
