I live in the Shoalhaven area of NSW Australia. I love the garden and all of the wildlife that it attracts. Especially the birds.

Jacaranda mimosifolia

Oh this is going on my #wishlist. Might have to bring it in during harsher winters. Says only frost hardy to 19°F we get to -19°F. 😨

Grrrrr.... Can it be trimmed back and kept smallish? I do have a large garage that fits big RV's/travel trailers.🤔🤔🤔

You can only try you will need to buy a grafted one as they take 15years to flower from seed. Good luck.

@SikoMa yes they are fragrant but not overwhelming the bees love the blooms.

I'm still going to have to find one and try it. Are they more or less hardy than say, a tulip tree?

As I live in a temperate climate I find that they are both hardy enough. @SikoMa

I've always wanted one. There are a few of them dotted across my city so next time I spot one I'll take a cutting (hoping it roots!)

I agree with @sue1953 a seed of Jacaranda would be the way to go. Ours was sell sown and now a massive tree after about 22 years.

I love the blue period that marks Summer and also wish they grew here. We have one that hangs over the fence from my neighbour but never flowers. I am guessing too cold💙

@Shephes maybe the tree was grown from seed and is too young to flower

It's neighbours so maybe that's the case but there seems to be a line where below this line e jacarandas in flower above ie Faulconbridge and above none 😞
