The Flowering Jacaranda Tree

This is a jacaranda tree.  I saw a number of these on our trip to Palm Desert and they are just beautiful.   I wish I could have one of these in my yard, they bloom purple flowers and when the petals drop to the ground, they turn it into a sea of purple, just so gorgeous.  I believe they are native to Southern California so I don’t think they would survive the cold here in Northern California.

The Jacaranda ranges from shrubs to large trees and ranges in size from about 6 feet tall to a staggering 98 feet tall.  They bloom twice a  year, although the spring blooms are much more vivid than the fall ones.  The Jacaranda is very popular in Southern and Central Florida and Phoenix, Arizona.  It makes an excellent shade tree and is often found in parks and along streets.

The blossoms are generally a gorgeous purple, although some varieties have white blooms.  This tree is also a great choice if you are zero-scaping or have a garden that is always in direct sunlight.  The branches arch which creates great shade for other plants below.
