There are also varieties available with white blossoms. This tree grows to a height of anywhere from 5-50' tall and 15-60' wide. The fruit is a dry, brown, round pod that is 1 to 3" wide and typically develops in late summer
Jacaranda Mimosifolia does best in well-draining, slightly sandy soil. For the best blooming, plant Jacaranda mimosa folia in full sun. Small trees can live in light shade if necessary. The jacaranda is moderately drought tolerant but requires watering during dry periods.
