Jacaranda mimosifolia

Bignoniaceae
Deciduous, Trees

Brazilian native grows to 25–50 ft. high and 15–30 ft. wide, with open, irregular, oval-headed habit; is sometimes multitrunked or even shrubby. Tubular, 2-in., lavender-blue flowers appear in 8-in. clusters. Finely cut, ferny leaves usually drop in late winter. New leaves may emerge quickly, or branches may remain bare until the tree comes into bloom, typically in mid- to late spring, though blossoms may appear earlier or open at any time throughout summer.
