OTHER: The Woman's Tongue Tree is very ornamental & has a long list of wonderful uses! A native of the tropics & sub-tropics, they are very tolerant of humidity, drought, & salty coastal conditions.
The plants have traditional herbal & medicinal uses, are grown as an ornamental shade tree, & are used for erosion control. Woman’s Tongue is a legume, so it helps the nitrogen levels in the soil to improve the soil’s fertility. They are also grown for honey production, with the flowers being very rich in nectar for honey bees, & are harvested for their quality hardwood lumber.
Nicknamed Mimosa Lebbeck, there are many visual similarities to Mimosa Trees, from the flowers to the foliage & seed pods.
