Jacaranda mimosifolia is a native to temperate parts of Brazil and Argentina and has been grown across the world for its beautiful coloured flowers and attractive spreading growth habit. The bark is pale brown and furrowed, transverse cracks dividing the ridges between the furrows into long, narrow scales. Leaves are compound and feathery on a stalk to 40 cm; with up to 30 pairs of pinnae bearing small, pointed leaflets. Flowers are striking blue-violet, in clusters. Each flower is bell shaped, to 4 cm and usually on the bare tree before leaf growth. Whilst this tree is frost sensitive when young, it will tolerate mild frosts when established.

Propagation

This tree is quite a greedy feeder and to get the best flowers it is advisable to give the plant a good feed leading up to its flowering period and when it first starts to flower.
