Planting & Care
Choose the spot for your tree wisely. One piece of jacaranda tree information that many nurseries and catalogs don’t share is that when the flowers drop, they cover the ground in a thick layer and must be raked up before they decompose into slime.
An afternoon with a rake will do the trick, but this is the reason so many jacarandas are planted as street trees, allowing most of the spent blooms to fall on the street instead of in the yard.

- Plant the tree in an open spot with sandy soil and full sun.
- Keep the soil moist deep down by soaking it with a hose for half an hour, but letting it dry out in between waterings.
Care for a jacaranda tree almost always includes pruning.
- In order to give it the best shape to show off those blooms, smaller branches should be trimmed early in the spring.
