The jacaranda tree is a tropical beauty with its clusters of fragrant, purple, trumpet-shaped blooms. In the right climate, it makes an excellent shade or street tree.
The foliage of jacaranda are fern-like, bipinnate compound leaves up to 20\\" long. The tree can be either semi-evergreen or deciduous, depending on the climate. Most of the blooming is in late spring/summer, but in warmer areas, the tree can flower at any time. Only mature trees have flowers; small or young trees and those grown indoors typically do not flower.
In general, jacarandas are a good choice for large outdoor areas in warm climates. They are tolerant to occasional cold down to 20 F but do not thrive in climates with frequent freezing temperatures. They like a lot of sun but are vulnerable to trunkscald in areas with high temperatures.
Jacarandas can be grown indoors but, again, they probably will not flower, and they must be planted outdoor eventually, so they are not good for long-term container planting.
Young jacaranda trees should be pruned to form one central leader (main trunk) for strength and stability. Otherwise, try to avoid pruning your jacaranda because it tends to promote vertical suckers that can distort the tree's shape. Try to remove only broken or diseased branches. Jacaranda leaves, and particularly the flowers, can create a lot of litter when they drop. This makes the tree a poor choice near pools or large water features. It's also not ideal near driveways, patios or outdoor recreation areas due to the cleanup maintenance. If the debris isn't swept up quickly, it can rot and result in a slimy mess.
