Jacaranda mimosifolia, also known as Brazilian Rosewood, Green Ebony , and Jacaranda is native to Brazil.
A spreading , deciduous tree or Simi evergreen , grows 25 tall with a 30 foot wide open irregular , oval head , it sometimes is multi trunked or even shrubby. Leaves are finely cut, fernlike; usually dropping in February these branches may remain bare until flowering time after which new leaves grow quickly.
The Jacaranda has many 8 inch long clusters of lavender blue, 2 inch tubular flower, usually in June but can bloom any time from April to September. A roundish flat seed capsule is quite decorative and is often used in floral arrangements.
Jacaranda’s take a wide variety of soils but do best in sandy soils they need regular but not frequent irrigation. Too little water stuns their growth. They are fairly hardy after attaining some maturity; young plants are tender below 25 degrees.
Jacarandas are a great subject for Bonsai.
