The Jacaranda is an eye-catching, round-headed semi-evergreen tree that grows at a moderate to rapid rate and reached 30 to 50 feet high and 15 to 30 feet wide. Due to its size, it is considered best for parks, commercial use or large residences. In May and June lacy, fern-like green leaves and large clusters of attractive, lavender-blue flowers bloom in profusion. As flowers drop, they produce a fair amount of litter, so it’s important to keep this in mind when planting. The jacaranda should also be planted in soil with good drainage. It’s best to water the jacaranda deeply to reduce development of surface roots, but should not be overwatered. In the growing season, it’s best to water weekly, but only once or twice during the dormant winter period. The jacaranda produces suckers if pruned too heavy. It is native to Brazil. The canopy coverage can be up to 707 square feet.
