Re: Questions about pruning, shaping and staking my mimosa
at this relatively young stage you can probably stake the stems and "force" them into a more upright position. you can do this right now and hope a mild winter will favor you OR wait and see if there are any stems next spring in condition to stake then. if the above ground stems die this winter then I assume that you can then deal with the regrowth from the base to get the growth patterns and tree shape you wish. hope this helps. good luck.
