Fast Growing Tree with Purple Spring Blooms and Rich Fall Color

Jacaranda will Soothe your Senses

Here's how:

  • Tons of incredible, long lasting purple blooms
  • Fast growing tree with fernlike foliage
  • Drought tolerant, adapts well to a variety of soil types
  • Rich, yellow fall colors

Jacaranda puts on a show of Color like no other

If you think you've died and gone to heaven, you must be standing under a Jacaranda Tree. That's because the color that will emerge from the clusters of blossoms is so visually breathtaking, it's unlike any other tree in the landscape. Like a sea of lavender, the incomparable blooms flood the tree prior to any leaves, making their striking appearance that much more magnificent.

The large, silky flowers make a grand entrance, hanging in heavy bunches as they usher in the summer. When the trumpet-shaped blooms finally fall, they form a lilac carpet beneath an awe-inspiring specimen that passersby will surely admire. The incredible dome-shaped canopy makes walking along a street lined with Jacarandas an experience you'll want to enjoy season after season.

Lovely yes, but Tough too

Don't let the soft, lavender flowers of the Jacaranda fool you. The powerful trunk and thick branches that hoist all those lovely blooms are strong and resilient. It's a tough tree that grows to heights of 40 feet and will thrive in a variety of soil types. Not only that, it's drought tolerant and will do well in a diversity of planting locations throughout your garden or landscape.

It's time to add the touch of lavender that your color spectrum's been missing.

Order your Jacaranda today.

Tree Died in Winter
I live in Houston, TX and bought the tree in May. It was a 2 foot stem when I received it. The tree grew quickly, and by December/January it was about 12 feet tall. The temps did drop to 32 F in December for a day or so, and the tree did not die. Unfortunately, in January, we had a 2 day freeze where the temperature dropped to 26 F, and the tree died. :/ Also, there is another Jacaranda tree a few blocks away, this one was several years old and about 25 feet tall, with a spread about the same. It also froze and turned very dark (black), like dead. The branches have not gotten their leaves back, but some new branches are sprouting from the trunk area. I guess moral of the story, if it freezes, your tree will die.

Survivor
It survived Hurricane Irma. It's skinny and looks like a Charlie Brown tree right now. I'm looking forward to some flowers and additional foliage in the spring.

Nice little tree
The tree arrived in good condition and about 2-3 ft. tall. I replanted it in a large planter and it is growing well. I will see how it does the rest of the summer and plant in the yard this fall.

Love it so far, have high hopes for the future
Received it quickly through the mail. Leaves were dry and brittle. Planted the tree promptly, I choose a spot that has full sun. I was a little worried, as I live in zone 9 and it gets very hot in he summer. Immediately the tree started new growth that continues

Planting & Care



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



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Jacaranda Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Jacaranda Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Jacaranda Tree again after the transplant is complete.

BEST ANSWER: I don't know yet. I bought my tree at around 2 feet tall just last season. It is now about 6ft tall but has not blossomed yet. I'm hoping it will blossom this summer.
Is this a good street tree, planted next to a driveway?
mary c on Mar 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Mary,
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.
Is the Jacaranda tree an evergreen tree and what do the flowers have a nice strong scent?
Vincent on Sep 23, 2017

I haven't noticed any scent. It's still too young to flower.

I live in a Canyon in Califiornia. My winter temp can go down to 10 degrees. Will this tree survive that?
Francesca on Jul 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Jacaranda Tree is good for Growing Zones 9 to 11. It is hardy down to 30 degrees F.
What do you use to fertilize this tree?
Vicki H on Jan 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: A yearly application of a 10-10-10 nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium slow-release granular fertilizer will provide the tree with the needed nutrients. An application of 1 tablespoon per square foot of soil underneath the trees canopy is sufficient.
Has anyone had any luck growing these in the DFW area?
