I have 2 jacarandas planted very close to each other. One is blooming very well and the other has never had any blooms. What could be the problem?
Even though they are close to each other, there can be differences in soil, sun and nutrients.
Jacaranda must receive full sun, at least 6 hours.
Soil must be well draining.
Winds often affect blooming on these trees.
Do not fertilize grass near or under the trees, excess nitrogen will inhibit flowering.
Water with 1 to 2 inches of water under the entire canopy starting in spring through fall-every 2 weeks.
Hopefully this tree will start flowering for you!
Our jacaranda tree has lots of green leaves, and appears health but has very few purple blossoms. what could the problem be?
Stop fertilizing grass growing near and under a jacaranda. The nitrogen found in lawn fertilizers can prevent trees from flowering.
Water jacaranda deeply with 1 or 2 inches of water, covering the entire area under the canopy. Do this once every two weeks from spring until fall, during the growing season.

i live outside of lasvegas nv and its been about 115 degrees during the day and my littletrees leaves are turning brown and drying up I bought a shade from lowes and put over it, will it help? I water it every night and I don't know what else to do
Shading will help, keep the trees watered. Slow trickle of water to water deeply into the soil.
You are doing all you can do, hopefully the temps will cool down.
Hello. We have a jacaranda tree that we've had about 3 years. It has been so beautiful. In the early spring we pruned it a little because it had grown heavier on one side. In May it bloomed, but had no leaves. It is now the end of June and still no leaves. The few it has are very small and do not look good. Can you give us some advise as what we can do. We love this tree and do not want to lose it. Thank you in advance for any help. Sharon

I have two large jacarandas growing in my front yard. They were pretty much the same size when we moved in back in 1976. Between five and ten years ago tree roots began to push up the sandstone blocks in front of the house. Three years ago I pulled up some of the blocks and chopped back the thick roots beneath. This was when I discovered I had a heart condition and had to stop. The roots have now pushed up more blocks and damaged the front step. I have always blamed the jacaranda, but it has just occurred to me that the pine growing next to one of the jacarandas might be to blame. We had no root problems for the first 30+ years we were in the house and the pine, planted as a small bush, has grown dramatically in the last 6 to 10 years. Which tree's roots are causing the problem? Below are four images of the two trees and the root damage. note, in the second image the pine is directly in front of the jacaranda.
The root system of either of these trees can lift and damage the tiles and it very well could be both.
I would seek some expert advice to avoid further damage to your exterior property.
