Jacaranda Grown from Seeds

Jacaranda trees are relatively easy to grow from seeds.

The jacaranda tree is a tropical beauty with its clusters of fragrant, purple, trumpet-shaped blooms. It makes an excellent shade or street tree.

Latin Name:
Jacaranda mimosifolia

Common Names:
Jacaranda, Brazilian rose wood, blue jacaranda, blue trumpet tree

Preferred USDA Hardiness Zones:
Zones 9-11

Size & Shape:
This tree grows to a height of anywhere from 5-50' tall and 15-60' wide.

For the best blooming, plant Jacaranda mimosifolia in full sun. Small trees will be able to live in light shade if needed.

The leaves are pinnately compound, fine textured, and less than 2" each. Jacaranda can be either semi-evergreen or deciduous. The leaves may cause a lot of litter when they drop.
Jacaranda is renowned for its clusters of purple, fragrant, trumpet shaped blossoms. These may also cause a lot of litter when they drop. Most of the blooming is in late spring/summer, but in the warmer areas it can flower at any time.
