For almost 60 years the mimosa is the symbol of March 8, Women’s Day, or rather, of the Women’s International Day.
Why this flower? What could be better than a flower in a colorful and cheerful, the day dedicated to women? That’s how, for almost 60 years, on March 8 becomes the triumph of twigs with yellow dots, with that their typical and delicate aroma.
