Jacaranda is a fast growing ornamental tree mainly used for its spectacular display of lilac/blue flowers that appear from Spring through Summer.
Jacaranda is native to South America and prefers a sub-tropical to tropical region. It will be deciduous in cooler climates.
When the tree is still in the juvenile stage, prune any low branches to encourage a clear trunk.
Jacaranda make a great specimen tree and are widely used in Avenue planting where the whole street will be blanketed in purple as the flowers fall.
After flowering the plant produces round woody seed cases.
Depending on the situation and soil type Jacarandas will grow between 5 and 12 m high.
