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 marina
Unfortunately, you could be looking at anywhere from 7 to 14 years to see your first flowers!I'm sorry to inform you of this. Here is an article that will give you more information on the care of these trees: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/jacaranda/jacaranda-tree-information.htm
Hello. I have a jacaranda tree which has grown straight up to about 4 metres and only has two vertical branches straight up, the v starts about halfway up the tree.we have had to stake it up as it sways alot in the wind. Im wondering if I should cut the top out of the tree and if I prune it would it promote more branches to grow furtherdown thetrunk and do you advise pruning it above or below the v in the 2 vertical branches. Any extra advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks verymuch.
It would appear that these trees naturally will grow in this fashion. You can prune them, but do not prune low. Only prune 1/3 of the tree at a time. This article will explain in detail the process for safely pruning this: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/jacaranda/pruning-a-jacaranda-tree.htm
Nearly all the mature Jacarandas in the Upper Hunter this year have very few fully developed leaves at this stage. They seem to begin and then just die off - particularly high up in the trees. Can anyone tell me what is going on please? I have a beautiful, mature jacaranda in my garden and it flowered well but now has a fraction of its normal leaf cover.
Can you include a picture? This will help me to help you better. I would guess a pH issue without seeing what is going on, but this is just a guess. You can apply dolomitic lime, and if this does not solve the problem then we can move on to the next possible issue.

I was given a Jacaranda tree seedling...currently 18cm tall, not including roots. When will it be ready to plant out? I live in Auckland, New Zealand so good growing conditions. Thanks
I would always recommend that a tree spend its first year inside, to acclimate. If you are sure that the tree will do well in your climate, and would naturally grow there anyways, then you should be able to plant it out at any time during the early active growing season.

Ok so I planted this tree back in May (?) last year and it has been growing like crazy. But, all of a sudden, about a month ago, the leaves went a dark reddish brown and dried up, but are still on the tree. They brush off fairly easily with a touch, but have not fallen off in the wind. I am wondering if I managed to kill the poor thing or is this a normal winter look for them. I live in the Mojave desert near the Sierras, for reference. Is it dying? Is there anything I can do to save it if it is? Sorry, no pics atm it's dark....
To me, this sounds like a fungal/bacterial infection. The tree does require the soil to stay moist, but they do tend to like a slight drying in between watering.
On the opposite end of things... They do not like overly dry soil. This can cause your symptoms as well.

I have a large, mature Jacaranda tree in the front yard, more than 15 feet tall. It had recently bloomed. It was over hanging the house so I trimmed it. I got carried away and cut all the branches with leaves off. It has been 6 months and nothing has grown back. The trunk is 10 inches in diameter. If I cut a scratch into the trunk it is still green. What ,if anything can I do to save this tree? If not, I guess I will have to cut it down
If it is still alive, the only thing you can do is wait. and let it regrow... keep cutting into the tree to check if it is still green periodically.
My Jacaranda has yellow sickly leaves. It's spring here in Phoenix but we never really had a winter this year and the leaves never fell. Could that be the problem? What do I do about it? I just purchased the tree a year ago so it's young but it was beautiful all last summer!
This can be caused by many things. Could you send a picture of the tree and the areas around it? This can help me to better see what is going on.
