First, make sure your jacaranda tree is growing in an appropriate environment for the species. Jacarandas need well-drained, preferably sandy soil, and they flower best if their soil is not very rich in organic matter.

Also, exposure to excessive nitrogen fertilizer or lack of phosphorus in the soil can cause many plants to flower poorly.
