Can a Mimosa ever be yellow?

My grandmother has a mimosa in her front yard.  Several years ago, "that 
disease that kills mimosas" "killed" it.  She burned off the stump, and a 
little while later, the tree grew back with _white_ flowers.  It has been 
white ever since.  (several years.)  I would guess that if you can have a 
white one, (they have a little bit of a yellow tint when older) you can 
have a yellow one.  I don't know though.  Has anyone else out there seen 
a white mimosa?  I was wondering if I could take root cuttings and get 
lots of little white mimosas!
