Jacaranda (Jacaranda mimosifolia), packet of 30 seeds


Jacaranda (Jacaranda mimosifolia)
Family: Bignoniacea
Hardiness:  30 degrees F
Deciduous tree native to Argentina and Bolivia, growing to about 50 feet tall and equally as wide.  Blue-purple trumpeting flowers occur during the spring, literally lighting up the trees.  Excellent choice for a street or yard tree in sufficiently warm zones, I hold a lifelong memory of walking down Jacaranda street in Nairobi while the display was ON!  The leaves are used in traditional south American herbalism to make an antibacterial wash.  Plant prefers hot, sunny, and humid weather, growing best in fertile, well-drained soil.  Nick seed, soak overnight, and plant warm.  Germ in 1 to 2 weeks.  30 seeds/pkt, open pollinated
