Grow Jacaranda in a sheltered, sunny position in sandy, well-drained soil. This tender tree will survive a minimum temperature of -2C (28F), but is best grown in a container which can be brought into a heated greenhouse or conservatory during the winter months. It can be returned to the patio as the weather warms in the following spring.
Feed and water Jacaranda plants regularly. Jacaranda needs virtually no pruning except for the occasional removal of dead or damaged stems. If necessary, it can be lightly pruned in winter to improve its shape. In autumn, move Jacaranda plants to a heated greenhouse or conservatory to provide a minimum temperature of -2C (28F), until the following spring when they can be returned to their position outside.
