The Q&A Archives: Can you help us find out about a tree name?

Question: We live in Charlotte, NC. and have been seeing this tree all over town blooming right with purple flowers. It doesnt seem to be any larger than a dogwood tree and similar in the way it looks.

Answer: My guess is a Jacaranda. The flowers grow in clusters. Hope this is the tree!
