Jacarandas are grown widely in warm parts of the world and in greenhouses for their showy blue or violet flowers and attractive, oppositely paired, compound leaves. The genus includes about 50 species. The name is also applied to several tree species of the genera Machaerium and Dalbergia in the pea family (legume), the sources of commercial rosewood. The blue flowers of the Jacaranda tree adorn the streets of many African cities, such as: Pretoria the Jacaranda City. Jacaranda mimosifolia are spectacular late spring flowering trees, which create washes of purple through many towns and suburbs each spring. In particular mass plantings of jacarandas along the street create a river of purple as well as a carpet underneath the trees when the flowers begin to fall. Jacarandas are large trees which grow to 30ft tall and up to 30ft wide with a low, broad branching habit. As well as the commonly seen purple, there are also white-flowering and variegated foliage varieties. See Article about Jacaranda.

I . want the Jarcaranda tree Will it grow in my area THe purple one

Hello !

I think this part of the article (copy hereunder) linked to the Jacaranda mimosifolia is very confusing if not confused. The only possible explanation is that Mr. Otto Degener only talked to brazilians who had lost their front teeth or else he had a serious problem with at least one of his ears !

Brasilians do not pronounced J like Z they say Jacare, Joia, Jota, Janela. Have you ever heard a Brazilian talk about Rio de Zaneiro ?

Jacaranda is a Tupi name (one of the brazilian native tribes) and I doubt that mister Otto Degener or the so-called "literates" were friendly enough with them to check their pronunciation of the word Jacaranda.

"The name Mimosifolia means having leaves like the Mimosa tree, but the tree described by Mr. Otto Degener in the Journal of the New York Botanical Gardens as Jacaranda acutefolia. He says: "The acute-leaved Jacaranda has been introduced usually under the wrong scientific name. Even the common name Jacaranda is seldom pronounced correctly. It comes from Brazil, where the literates speak largely Portuguese and in that language the letter "j" is pronounced like the "z" in "azure," and in this word the last vowel is accented."

I went to Disney, Fl in 06 and I saw these trees all about the park. I was impressed and wanted to have them. I searched the Baton Rouge area and no one has heard of them. I finally ordered the plants on line. They came a foot long and I potted the immediately. They did not fair well because of improper care. I waited through the winter and replanted the twigs I had left and other braches formed off the sides of the three I originally bought. Now they are looking like trees. They are far from putting out blooms but they will be highly maintained now.

These are a such a treat! I have 6 of these growing in my yard. I started them from seed 7 years ago, and one tree has reached over 40 feet in height. I have to say that they are not so easy to get to flower. I have only one tree that did flower now 2 years ago. Wet spring weather seems to keep my trees from flowering. Regardless of whether or not they flower, the foliage itself is very attractive. Thus far, my trees have survived hard freezes for several years now. I did protect the young trees (under 3 years of age. They were not planted until after that time. The soil in my area is alkaline. However, I did give two trees to my sister 60 miles south-east of me, and she has acidic soil. Her trees have done very well also.
