Jacaranda mimosifolia (Jacaranda) Details

Jacaranda mimosifolia is tropical looking tree that is widely planted because of its beautiful and long-lasting, blue flowers. Loose clusters of the deep blue-mauve flowers are borne en masse through spring and summer. The flowers result in woody, brown seed pods which are often used for Christmas decorations. The bark is thin and grey-brown eventually becomes finely scaly as the tree ages. The dark green foliage is fern like in appearance, and in warm climates it will remain evergreen, otherwise it will be deciduous. It typically grows to 12 m tall and 8 m wide, performing best when planted on a well-drained site in full sun. It is tolerant of dry periods, frost, cool climates and moderate wind though it is important to protect young trees until they are established. This Jacaranda is commonly used in avenue plantings to provide an unforgettable sight, grown as a specimen, added to a mixed planting, or included in a “tropical” garden. This is a popular and very rewarding tree.
