I have several seeds of the Mimosa/Silk Tree (Albizzia julibrissen).  I am 
wondering how and when I should plant them.  I think they need to be soaked, 
then cut for germination to occur.  I'm not sure which end of the seed I 
should cut - the end with or without the dark dot where it was attached to 
the fruit pod?

After it germinates, what soil type is best?  When should I plant it 
outdoors?  Will it flower the first year?  I live in Champaign, IL.

Thanks for any information on this beautiful plant.
