Plant Care


Jacaranda trees love sun, and thrive when they receive 6 to 8 hours of direct light a day.


Water deeply but infrequently, once a week, or more during very hot or drought-like weather conditions.


Jacarandas like poor soil, so should only be lightly fertilized, if at all, with a balanced, 10-10-10 tree fertilizer.

Planting and Care

by Mary Van Keuren | Gardener (30+ Years Experience) – last update on December 22, 2021

Planting instructions

Jacaranda trees prefer a planting site with sandy, well-draining,soil that receives full sun. Also consider that the tree will drop a large amount of flowers, creating yard litter that may need to be raked. When you’ve found the perfect site, dig a hole as deep as the tree’s root ball and about three times as wide. Place the tree upright in the hole, making sure the top of the root ball is level with the ground, and backfill with soil. Gently tamp down the soil and water the planting site thoroughly.

Watering and nutrients

For a few weeks after planting, Jacaranda trees should be watered every couple of days. Be careful not to oversaturate the soil, as this can lead to fungal diseases, root rot, and slow growth. Once the trees have established themselves, they should only require supplemental water during long periods of drought. Jacaranda trees thrive in poor soil, and rarely need supplemental fertilizing. At most, give your tree a light application of a fertilizer formulated for landscape and flowering trees.


Jacaranda trees do not require much pruning to grow successfully. There are a few instances where you may wish to break out the pruning shears and trim up your tree. Always remove dead, dying, or diseased branches as soon as you find them, as these can slow down growth or spread a disease to the rest of the tree. You may also wish to prune lower branches if the tree is blocking a pathway, or to promote a denser, wider canopy. Pruning is best performed in winter during the tree’s dormant period.

Pests and diseases

Watch out for glassy-winged sharpshooters, a leafhopper insect, as they carry a bacterial disease called Xylella fastidiosa that will kill your Jacaranda trees. If you spot this pest or see evidence of their presence in the form of a white fluid on your tree, apply neem oil or insecticidal soap to your tree’s foliage. Like many plants, Jacaranda trees are prone to aphid infestations. Lady beetles are the best defense against aphids, but you can also apply neem oil as an effective remedy. When planted in soil that lacks adequate drainage, Jacaranda trees will likely develop root rot.

Are Jacaranda trees fast growing?

Jacaranda trees are prolific growers, usually putting on three to four feet of annual growth. Individuals planted in ideal conditions have been known to grow over six feet per year. Mature specimens can grow to towering heights of over 50 feet with a canopy spread of up to 30 feet. Jacaranda trees planted in a favorable environment may live for over 150 years, but the average lifespan for the species is around 50 years.

Can Jacaranda trees be grown in containers?

While growing Jacaranda indoors is possible, it comes with a few challenges. The tree requires large amounts of direct sunlight, which can be impossible to provide in some homes without the addition of grow lights. If you can meet the tree’s light requirements, make sure to plant in as large of a container as you can accommodate. Jacaranda is also a popular choice of tree for bonsai growers.

When do Jacaranda trees bloom?

Depending on the area they are grown in, Jacaranda trees will bloom in late spring or early summer. Once bloom season arrives, the purple flowers may last on the tree for up to two months. This long period of beauty is what has made the species so popular. Expect to see blooms on your Jacaranda trees three or four years after planting — the first round of flowers may take longer to appear if the tree is planted in unfavorable conditions.

What is the purple panic?

In many parts of the world, the blooming season of Jacaranda trees lines up with the end of year exams for students. Many colleges, especially in Australia, have many Jacaranda trees planted around their campus. For students on these campuses, the trees’ purple blossoms have become associated with the stress that comes with finals and exams. Hence, this period of time is known as the purple panic.

Violet tree Jacaranda seeds, 3pcs, Gavrish, Flower collection

  • This elegant plant from the Bignoniaceae family is grown indoors as an ornamental leaf. Delicate light green openwork leaves, similar to fern or mimosa leaves, up to 45 cm long, are of particular decorative value. Their beauty is genuine admiration. With proper care, the jacaranda reaches a height of 2 m. The plant loves bright light and thrives in a warm sunny room. She needs moderate watering with warm soft water from spring to autumn, limited in winter, only as the topsoil dries, as well as frequent spraying of the leaves. During the rest period, the plant is placed in a bright room with an air temperature of about 15-16 ° C. In winter, due to lack of light, the jacaranda can shed its leaves; in spring, the foliage is completely restored. It reproduces well by seeds, which in the spring, after soaking for a day in water, are placed in containers with a diameter of 12-15 cm. The soil is used light and loose with a high content of peat before germination, be sure to arrange drainage. At a soil temperature of 20-25 ° C shoots appear in 2-4 weeks. As soon as the seedlings grow to 5-7 cm in height, a dive is carried out. The soil substrate for plants consists of two parts of sod, one part of leaf soil with the addition of sand. Large specimens can be pruned. They are used for landscaping the interior, placing in well-lit places in rooms, halls, lobbies.

    Recommended species

    Pointy-leaved jacaranda, Mimosole jacaranda.

    Growing conditions

    Location. Jacaranda during the period of activity prefers bright diffused light, so the eastern, western and southern window sills will be the best places for its habitat at home. On the southern windows, you will have to provide diffused light with the help of tulle, blinds, etc. Jacaranda is thermophilic, does not tolerate drafts and temperature changes. It is necessary to maintain a uniform temperature: in summer + 23-25°C, in winter + 18°C. Relative humidity of the room - 65%.

    Soil. The soil for jacaranda should be loose and nutritious: mix the soil yourself with sod, leaf soil, peat and sand (1:2:1:0.5) or simply use the ready-made soil PETER PEAT "For flower crops" of the HOBBY line.

    Pot. Before planting, pour warm water over the jacaranda in a store pot, carefully remove it with a root ball of earth. At the bottom of a wide and shallow pot with drainage holes, transplant the plant, fill the voids with fresh soil, compact the soil, pour with a solution of liquid humic fertilizer PETERP PEAT "Living Force: Universal". After planting, the root neck of the tree should remain above the ground.


    Watering. In the spring-summer period, water jacaranda abundantly, 3-4 times a week, the rest of the time - as the topsoil dries, with soft, settled or filtered water. During this period, provide high humidity around the jacaranda. Moisten the tree itself and the air around it with frequent spraying, or place the pot on a tray with wet pebbles / expanded clay (so that the bottom of the pot does not touch the water).

    Top dressing. From May to October, alternate between PETER PEAT Liquid Humic Fertilizer "Living Force: Universal" and PETER PEAT Liquid Complex Mineral Fertilizer "Mineral Balance: For Flower Crops" once every two weeks. During periods when the tree sheds leaves, it is not necessary to feed.

    Cutting. Formation of the jacaranda crown by pruning is best done in mid-late March . Some growers deliberately bend the branches and shoots of the plant using wire and small weights. The splendor of the crown is facilitated by regular pinching of its growth points.

    Rest period. From November to March, the jacaranda goes into hibernation: place it in a room with a temperature of + 18 ° C, do not feed, water once every 10 days as the top layer of the soil dries out.


    In mid-March, young jacarandas are transplanted annually into a new pot (+15% of the old volume) with new soil. An adult jacaranda can be transplanted into a new container by transshipment with the replacement of the top 4 cm layer of soil if the plant is older than 3 years. Remove the jacaranda from the pot along with the earthy clod, transfer to a new pot. At the bottom of the pot, provide a drainage layer sprinkled on top with a thin layer of substrate. Then add soil a little at a time and compact it. The root neck should remain above the soil surface.


    Cuttings. In June-July, cut the top cuttings 10-12 cm long from an adult jacaranda, remove their lower halves from foliage and immerse in PETER PEAT liquid humic fertilizer "Live force: for soaking seeds" for 10-12 hours. Then deepen them 3-4 cm into moist soil, cover with a transparent film and place the container with the cuttings in a room with a temperature of + 24-26 ° C and a phytolamp (at least 8 hours / day). Ventilate 4-5 times a day, removing the film and removing condensation from it. After 17-20 days, the cuttings will take root - new leaves will testify to this, and you can dive them into new pots for permanent residence.

    Seeds. In the middle of March, wrap the jacaranda seeds in 2-3 layers in gauze. Put gauze in a saucer with a solution of liquid humic fertilizer PETER PEAT "Live force: for soaking seeds" for 10-12 hours. Then dig them into the ground by 1 cm in 4 cm increments, cover with a transparent film and place the seed container in a room with a temperature of + 24-26 ° C and a phytolamp (at least 8 hours / day). Ventilate 4-5 times a day, removing the film and removing condensation from it. After 22-25 days, the seeds will germinate and they can be dived into separate pots.
