Jacaranda trees are considered semi-evergreen which means that they will retain some of their leaves during the winter months. They do eventually drop their leaves, though, usually from fall through winter and early spring when new emerging leaves push away the older leaves. They also drop flowers and large seed pods. The leaves are large, as are the seed pods so they're easy to rake up, but if you don't like litter on your lawn or patio, this might not be the tree for you.
