    I have what seems to be a Prairie Mimosa plant. It dies back in the winter and re-emerges in the spring and grows to about 3 feet. The stalk is about 1/8 to 1/4 inches in diameter. Is this a true Prairie Mimosa? It produces seed pods and seeds as you describe, but how do you get germination for more plants? A picture of a fully developed plant would help.
    Thank you.
