Pressed Mimosa Flowers, Also Known as Wattle or Acacia

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!
