Jacaranda mimosifolia


One of the most popular exotic imports in Southern California, this single species of leafy garden shrub or street tree boasts 8-inch-long clusters of 2-inch-long blue to violet flowers. Its crowded fernlike leaflets on 1½- to 2-foot-long leaves give foliage an airy look. Disk-shaped seed pods are used in dried flower arrangements. Fast-growing, older trees reach 50 feet tall and wide. Prune in early spring to form single trunk. Prefer sunny location and sandy, well-drained, acid soil. Protect brittle branches from high winds. Grown in subtropical areas outdoors or in containers in temperate greenhouses. Not frost tolerant below 27º F.
