Jacaranda mimosifolia is another one of the beautiful, large, and great-for-climbing shade trees that are grown and nurtured at our Moon Valley Nurseries. We sell younger, fast growing Jacaranda trees too. Jacaranda mimosifolia trees originate from Brazil and are admired for their beautiful, vibrant purple blooms in mid to late spring. The purple bell shaped flowers attract hummingbirds and other pollinators, making this Jacaranda tree a wonderful and colorful addition to any landscape.

Jacaranda mimosifolia is drought tolerant once established, has deep roots, and thrives in full sun environments. Though soft in appearance, Jacaranda trees are pretty tough and love growing in the intense summer heat that is common here in the Southwestern United States. Available as standard or multi-trunk, this semi-evergreen Jacaranda goes well with a tropical theme landscape design or even a desert landscape design. Since it is a semi-evergreen tree, it can provide excellent shade in the summer, and lets in the light during winter. This tree is fairly hardy after it gains some mature, hard wood, so feel free to buy a mature Jacaranda mimosifolia tree from the large inventory available at our Moon Valley Nurseries.

Part of its striking beauty comes from its soft, feathery, fern-like foliage and of course, the beautiful tubular flowers. Homeowners love to touch and feel the foliage while admiring its beauty up close and from a distance. Feel free to install nighttime landscape lighting and show off this beautiful tree to neighbors and passersby. This beauty can grow an up to 30-foot wide canopy, so you can expect to have an excellent amount of shade when you need it during those hot summer months but can also be trimmed to maintain a smaller width for tighter planting areas.

Homeowners looking to fill an open space on their property will love this vigorous, fast growing Jacaranda tree. Many will appreciate its easy to care for features. Pruning and maintenance is a breeze once you have this strikingly beautiful tree established on your landscape

Every time a plant is watered, the soil should be thoroughly saturated to a depth of at least 2 to 3 feet and at least as wide as a tree well. Very slow and deep watering is always recommended. During periods of extreme heat, we advise at least 1 additional time per week of watering for all varieties. For periods of heavy rain (1/2” or more) adjust accordingly by possibly skipping a watering session for that time.

I had grown up in California seeing these trees everywhere and always wondered what they were. I'd see them turn a whole streetscape purple in the spring. When we moved to AZ and had to landscape our yard, my husband and I wanted to have that same amazing purple in our yard. The guys at Moon Valley Nursery knew exactly what tree I was talking about immediately! They showed us several big, beautiful Jacarandas, and we picked out two mature ones for our front yard, and 3 others for the backyard. They helped us understand the care instructions since Arizona's climate is so much different from California's, and now 2 years in, our trees are growing great and looking incredible. Thank you Moon Valley for giving me that same purple from my childhood!



I want about 30 of big Jacaranda trees for the driveway of my property, and some other trees



So, I was so pleased when we found this site. The information you that was given was the most I'd seen in awhile. Thx.



We had Moon Valley plant 4 of these in our backyard this past spring. These trees are beautiful! They bloomed like crazy and give awesome filtered shade in the late afternoon. We purchased and had planted 4 Specimen trees that are about 15 feet tall already. We're hoping they'll eventually grow together to create a bigger shade area.

I absolutely love my jacaranda tree!! Such a great addition to my backyard, and it is so pretty when it's flowering. Highly recommend adding this to your landscape for a pop of color!
