How Do I Know if My Tree Is Going Bare for Winter as Usual, or Dead?

I have a flowering tree in my front yard (in Las Vegas area). It came with the house and is well-established. Every spring it produces purplish flowers and every winter it loses most (if not all) the leaves. . . but last week the Home Owner’s Assoc. (HOA) sent a notice that our tree is “dead and please remove and replace it. ” I am pretty sure they just don’t like us. . . and the tree will grow new leaves and flower in the spring as usual, but how do I know? Are there signs that can help me determine if they are right or if they are looking for a new way to hassle us? Also, I’ve looked at some internet sites trying to identify our tree and it looks a little like a cross between a Jacranda mimosifolia and a Red Buckeye (Aesculus pavia). . . but not a perfect match for either. . . help? I have a photo from last Christmas (no flowers left but it has more leaves last year than right now – but I can’t seem to paste a copy of it here. . . .

If your tree is grown from a grafted stock it should bloom in 2 to 3 years.
If it is a seed grown tree it can be 7 to 14 years.
Here is a link about this spectacular tree.

Jacaranda Tree

I live in Delhi, India and I want to know whether Jacaranda trees can survive in 44 C.? As I read in one of your articles, water won’t be a problem. My only concern is the climate.

Sick Jacaranda Tree

My 12 year Jachranda tree is suddenly very sick. Very few leaves. Flowers fall off before blooming. What can I do? The tree gets plenty of sunshine, faces canyon breeze. Thank You

Have you pruned it? Generally, a light pruning each year in late winter/early spring will help keep the tree looking and performing at its best. Be sure to remove any diseased/broken branches as well as any sucker growth at the base of the tree. Also, does the tree get enough light? For these trees to bloom successfully, they require full sun.

Since they normally prefer somewhat sandy soil, this could also be a factor as far as flowering goes, as the soil may be lacking phosphorus (a soil test would determine this). If this is the case, adding some high phosphorus fertilizer, like bone meal, to the soil around your tree should help encourage blooming. In fact, phosphorus is responsible for flowering in plants and this is one of the most common reasons for non-blooming issues. Here is more information on that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/phosphorus-plant-growth.htm

Lawn and Leaf Clutter

I live in Southern California and now planning a xeriscaped lawn with rocks and bark due to watering restrictions. If I plant a Jacaranda and surround the base with small rocks or bark, how would I clean up the dropped flowers and leaves? Can’t rake them off, so do I just let the leaves/flowers decay in place? I love this kind of tree with the pretty lavender flowers, but maybe it’s not a good idea(?). Perhaps not place rocks or bark at the base?

Keeping your garden debris cleaned up can be done manually or often times a leave blowers works great to clear a rocky area.
The garden droppings can be cleared to an area that is easier to sweep, rake and remove. You can even compost the dropped plant material.

I have a small electric leaf blower that is light and very east to use for this garden task!

State of Jacaranda Trees in Winter

I am writing a novel that mentions Jacaranda tree-lined avenues. My fiction is winter (June) in Sydney, Australia. I need to know if

a: the trunks are bare, and
b: when do new shoots and buds appear.

This description is important for a reader to visualize the setting and mood of a character in and around Kings Cross in 1946.

Many Thanks,
Cheryl Sullivan.

Jacarandas lose their leaves during the dry season and then produce flowers at the end of the dry season. It seems that the dry season in Sydney would be from January through March, so that the jacarandas would have leaves in June.
