Spring Blooms, Rich Fall Hues and Fast Tree Growth

Incredible, long-lasting purple blooms in spring transition to rich, yellow hues in the fall, making the Jacaranda Tree a season-to-season star that stands out. Fernlike foliage lends volume to its bold, dramatic silhouette for a quintessentially classic landscape look.

Deep color emerges from its clusters of spring blossoms, visually breathtaking and ultimately one-of-a-kind. A sea of lavender decorates the tree before leaves grow and makes the arbor strikingly artful. The Jacaranda’s beauty belies the utilitarian, totally durable features that make it a staple. It’s fast growing and drought tolerant, adapting well to an array of soil types.

And even more volume is conferred with those large, silky flowers because they hang in heavy, full bunches, ushering summer in after spring. When the trumpet-shaped blooms finally fall, they form a lilac carpet beneath the awe-inspiring Jacaranda for luxuriant curb appeal.

The incredible dome-shaped canopy makes walking along a street lined with Jacarandas an ethereal experience, season after season. When those bold blossoms give way to golden autumnal tones, the Jacaranda’s statement-making silhouette is even more magnificent.

Strength in beauty defines the jovial Jacaranda Tree. The powerful trunk and thick branches that hoist all those lovely blooms and gilt leaves are strong and resilient. It's a tough tree that grows to a sturdy 40 feet height and will thrive in a variety of soil types. Plus, because it's drought tolerant, it thrives in diverse planting locations. Achieving gorgeous greenery, full blossoms and fall freshness, all in one, has never been more effortless.

Order your Jacaranda Tree today for a stunning look that’s at once ethereal and dutifully durable, whether it’s gracing your sidewalk or enhancing your backyard garden.

Jacaranda update
My tree was in perfect conditions when I opened the box. Upon planting it, seems that it had an episode of shock, but it is now filling back up and showing a lot of growth.

I am now looking for a "Yellow Flamboyan" tree. Please let me know if you happen to stumble on one.

Love my Jacaranda
I have ordered from other catalogs and on line. I was never very happy with any of their products. Thought I would try one more company before never ordering without seeing my product. I was extremely impressed when my Jacaranda arrived. Packaged securely and the plant was happy and healthy. I only had 1 broken limb and, beside that, it was a beautiful plant. The only problem (which really isn't a problem) I have to wait till fall to put it into the ground. We've been having a scorcher of a summer. I am so in love with this plant, that while I wait, its standing beautifully on my front porch greeting me every morning. I am definitely contemplating another. Thank you Fast-Growing Trees for standing up to the plate and delivering what you advertise. Can't wait to see it flower!

My First Experience with FCT . . . .
I was a bit shocked when the tree arrived. It had wilted in transit and looked a bit beat up. As I was composing a letter to my lawyer in my mind, I decided to water the tree and keep it the air conditioned cool of my house overnight. I planted early the next morning. That's when the magic really started. It seemed to change each day! It has grown many new little branches and filled out amazingly well Of the SEVEN trees ordered from FGT, this is by far my favorite!! (Suffice to say, letter to lawyer not needed!!)

Also, one of the staff at FGT stated you can request orders to be shipped on Mondays. Monday shipping prevents trees from possible delays in transit on weekends.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Jacaranda Tree

Jacaranda Tree Planting Diretions

The Jacaranda tree (Jacaranda mimosifolia) is a lovely flowering tree that thrives in heat. Quickly reaching a height of 25-30 feet tall and 15-30 feet wide, these twisty trees provide a unique touch to the landscape. Growing in USDA zones 9-11, they love the heat but can only tolerate a light frost without causing damage to the tree.

Choosing a Location: The Jacaranda is a full sun tree that needs plenty of space to fill out. They prefer well drained, sandy soil. To bloom properly, the tree needs at least 8 hours of sun. Avoid areas that may be considered “frost pockets” (areas that are more prone to cold temperatures and/or frost), as these trees are sensitive to frost and will not bloom well or grow as quickly in those areas. Avoid planting them near swimming pools as the flower petals are abundant and can clog pool drains after dropping flowers.

Planting instructions:
1) Plant your jacaranda tree any time from early fall through winter. Planting them during the heat of summer can cause severe acclimation stress, preventing the tree from establishing properly.
2) Remove any weeds and grass from the planting area within a 3 foot area to keep them from competing with your establishing tree.
3) Water your containerized Jacaranda tree until the water flows through to hydrate all of the roots before planting.
4) Dig a hole that is 2-3 times the width of the container (the root ball), and just as deep.
5) Remove the plant from the container and loosen the roots with your fingers.
6) Place the tree in the center of the hole, holding the tree upright in the hole.
7) Begin backfilling the hole with a mixture of your native soil and sand to increase drainage (if you have sandy soil, just use your native soil mixed with a small amount of compost).
8) Place a thick layer of mulch over the planting area to protect the roots from fluctuating temperatures as well as help the tree to conserve water.
9) Water the tree well to saturate the entire planting area.

Watering: Water the Jacaranda tree well once-twice a week while the tree is establishing. The tree will need more water during the warmer months, but do not like to be in standing water. Once established the trees will only need water during times of extreme drought.

Fertilizing: Jacaranda trees need very little in the way of fertilization unless in very nutrient poor soil. You can use a well balanced slow release fertilizer formula such a 10-10-10 in early spring if needed to give the tree a boost.

Pruning: DO NOT prune your jacaranda tree except to remove dead or damaged limbs. Pruning encourages vertical shoots that will change the shape of the tree, causing it to look unsightly.

What is the freeze level of a 3 year old in zone 9?
Lisa M on Mar 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: As it gets older it’ll be hardier into the 20s. But it matters where you planted it. If possible plant it on a southern-exposed, partially shielded from the colder northern winds by larger evergreens (magnolia, live oaks) or next to a 2-story wall or house facing south; or next to an asphalt street getting early sunshine in winter. This is how mine survived being in Gainesville, Fla.

Yafah on Apr 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello Yafah,
Here on the island where we live on coastal Texas in Zone 9, our newly planted Jacaranda tree froze all the way to the ground this year with the unusually cold winter we had even though I covered it with protective blankets. Normally it would stay green all year but this year was different. I am happy to report that it is coming back from the roots. Good thing that I covered it. Jane

Is this a good street tree, planted next to a driveway?
mary c on Mar 12, 2017
My Jacaranda is still only about 3 feet tall and has not yet bloomed. I have researched it; when the blossoms fall, they are messy (sticky), so I would not suggest planting near the driveway where your vehicle may suffer. I planted mine between my house and my neighbor. I would guess planting near the street would be a good choice.
