Jacaranda (Jacaranda mimosifolia)
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
