Jacaranda mimosifolia

 

Blue Jacaranda

This plant thrives in warm climates, sited in full sun and growing in sandy soils. Mature plants can survive in colder climates down to -7 °C, however, they may not bloom as profusely. Young plants are likely to die in such cold temperatures and should be grown in containers which can be moved in for proection in winter. In temperate climates, these are usually grown as pot plants to a height of 1M.

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

For the best blooming, plant Jacaranda mimosifolia in full sun. Small trees will be able to live in light shade if needed. If grown as a houseplant, it is unlikely to bloom thus it is grown for its foliage. A light (sandy), free-draining soil is required.

 

Propagation

From Mid Spring TO Mid Summer

You can propagate Jacaranda mimosifolia using softwood cuttings, grafting, and seeds (though trees from seeds may take a long time to bloom).
