Jacaranda is a stunningly vibrant tree native to South America, now it is possible to have it flowering here in the UK! This is all thanks to its dwarf variety, which was bred in Japan, it can grow up to a height of 1.5m (5’), whereas its full-sized variety reaches heights of over 15m! it is a great addition to exotic themes and garden patios with its vibrant purple leaves. Ideally grow in a container so that it can be moved into warmer spots throughout the cold winters. In the spring it can be returned to its original home again. Height 150cm (5’). Spread: 60cm (24").

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.
