Blooms on a Jacaranda Tree

Shericampos@sbcglobal.net added on February 11, 2017 | Answered

How long does it take for a jacaranda tree to bloom? Mine is still small, about four years old and approximately 12 feet high. I thought it would bloom by now but it hasn't.

If grown from a cutting, they can take 2-4 years to bloom, but if grown from seed, they can take anywhere from 5-14 years to flower depending on their genetics and the planting location.

Jacarandas seem to be picky about the environmental conditions they are grown in. They are more likely to produce flowers if they're in full sun, have well-drained, sandy soil, and are not exposed to a lot of wind. The flower buds can also be damaged by cold winter weather.
