The Jacaranda tree is widely spread in the tropics. But in cooler climates it is a valuable pot and houseplant, appreciated because of the fine-feathered, fern-like, light green foliage.
With a bit of skill, blue to blue-violet, rispy inflorescences appear in older plants in warm and dry years with intense sun exposure.
Growing this tree from seed is an interesting project. If you live in an area where there are Jacarandas, these are still easy to have in your balcony garden or light rooms.
Best in sandy, fertile, well-drained soils in bright light. Likes heat and humidity. Keep soils evenly moist year around, and never allow soils to dry out.
Bring pots indoors each fall before frost for overwintering in a bright cool location. Young plants usually do not flower.
Can be grown as bonsai.
