I am in love with jacaranda tress and their flowers but didn’t want any in my garden because I have a pool and didn’t want the flowers in the pool. I planted 2 in the reserve next door to enjoy the flowers but the council took them out each time..
now the years later, one jacaranda started to grow by itself in our garden.. Its really odd because there are no jacaranda nearby in the whole suburb so I have no idea how that is possible. I decided that it was a gift form nature and to keep it.
I decided to keep ;o) when it was 80 cm high I juste transfered it in a better place in the garden in the lawn. we have a poor sandy soil, and the exposition is sunny. which, from what I understand, are good conditions for Jacarandas.
then I tried to understand when I might see the first flowers and it seems that it could take a very long time as its not from a graft?
is that true?
I called some nurseries and they tell me that they have flowers on very little and young trees and that none are from grafts, so I am a bit confused
thank you for your time
