|Description||An interesting tree with an open-branched, rounded crown holding large clusters of showy lavender-blue flowers that arrive in spring, backed by large bright green pinnate foliage that has a fern-like appearance. A splendid lawn specimen for a waterwise landscape with a broad canopy for dappled shade. Semi-evergreen.|
|Watering||Once established water deeply occasionally.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 25 to 40 ft. tall, 25 to 35 ft. wide.|
|Flower Attributes||Showy Flowers|
|Design Ideas||If everyone lived in frost-free climates, they would all have a Jacaranda tree in the yard. These open-headed trees offer filtered shade ideal for patios, courtyards, and decks. They are proven as street trees and make a great front-yard flowering specimen. A drought-resistant solution.|
|Companion Plants||Lilyturf (Liriope); Plumbago (Plumbago); Foxtail Fern (Asparagus); Indian Hawthorn (Rhaphiolepis); Agapanthus (Agapanthus); Sago Palm (Cycas)|
|Care||Provide enriched, well-drained soil. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates moderate drought. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. May be pruned annually to maintain desired size.|
|Lore||Due to the prevalence of these trees, the capital of South Africa, Pretoria, is known as Jacaranda city or Jakarandastad in Afrikaans|
