As far as pressed flowers go, I’d have to say that Mimosa is one of my favorite yellow flowers to press. Mimosa, with its beautifully rich golden-yellow color, still looks as fresh as the day it came out of the press decades later. Besides “Mimosa” this is commonly called, Thorn-tree, Whistling Thorn, or Wattle. This is a shrub in the Mimosa family and has a very nice fern-like foliage, as seen in the picture below, so press the entire plant!
Acacia has a beautifully fern-like foliage and is also commonly called, thorntree, whistling thorn, or wattle. This is a shrub in the Mimosa family and is very nice to press. This natural green color does not fade; I have some that are over 20 years old and still look as fresh as the day they came from the press.
