Jacaranda - Knowledgebase Question

Lakeshore, Fl
Question by oneavefenix

About three years ago. I planted two small purple-blue Jacarandas 15ft from my condo by the lake in Florida. They are about three feet tall now. I was assured this variety grows only from 3-4m at maturity. I plan to keep pruning them for a nice umbrella tipe shade. How safe will they be? How long to maturity?

Jacaranda paucifoliata, or dwarf jacaranda, will remain less that 4' tall at maturity and they usually bloom at an early age. If you've had yours in the ground in a sunny spot for 3 years, they should begin blooming for you this December or January. They bloom on the new growth of the season so don't prune them until late summer or you'll prune off any potential flowers! Best wishes with your landscape.
