Spring Blooms, Rich Fall Hues, and Fast Tree Growth
Why Jacaranda Trees?
Incredible, long-lasting purple blooms in spring give way 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 landscape look unlike any other.
Deep color emerges from its clusters of spring blossoms, which are visually breathtaking. A sea of lavender decorates the tree before leaves grow and makes the tree striking. But in addition to its unmatched beauty, the Jacaranda is fast-growing and drought-tolerant, adapting well to tough conditions.
Large, silky flowers hang in heavy, full bunches, ushering summer in after spring with ease. When the trumpet-shaped blooms finally fall, they form a lilac carpet beneath the awe-inspiring Jacaranda for luxuriant curb appeal.
Strength in beauty defines the unparalleled 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 height and will thrive in a variety of soil types.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: The Jacaranda is a full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day) lover that prefers well-drained soil.
Plant your Jacaranda in a hole that is 2 to 3 times the width of the container (the root ball), and just as deep. Place your tree and begin backfilling the hole, tamping down as you go to prevent air pockets. 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. Finally, water the tree well to saturate the entire planting area.
2. Watering: Water the Jacaranda Tree once or twice weekly while it's establishing. Once established, the trees will only need water during times of extreme drought.
3. Fertilizing: Jacaranda Trees need very little fertilizer, but if you want to speed up growth, you can use a well balanced, slow-release formula, such a 10-10-10, in early spring.
4. Pruning: Only remove dead or damaged limbs.

Customer Reviews & Photos
My tree arrived in excellent condition. I cared for it in a pot for 2 wks. My gardener planted it then. It is still doing well. No burned or damaged limbs.
