The Hong Kong Orchid tree (Bauhinia x blakeana) makes a better street tree in my opinion and is also very widely used here (as a street tree).

Hello Lori:

Thanks! The Bauhinia variegata, purpurea and variegata 'Candida' started blooming back in early February.

Yes, the Jacarandas are blooming now; they started about 3 weeks ago.

How wonderful for all the lucky people in San Diego. I know for positive/sure that the lovely Jacaranda won't work in my area...but was an unforgettable experience to see the seedlings springing up in the garden.

Yes, all the trees and plants are growing and blooming so well this year. I think it's because of all the rain we had this last rainy season.
