Jacaranda momosifolia - Jacaranda Tree


Jacaranda momosifolia - Jacaranda Tree (Jacaranda momosifolia - Jacaranda Tree)

This is my very large Jacaranda tree. It is very difficult to get a good photo because all the other plants and trees are in the way. Photo taken May 27, 2009.

They bloom before they leaf?

Lori:

Generally...however, sometimes they bloomand leaf out at the same time.
Also, sometimes trees are only semi-deciduous.

So they may keep some of their leaves from one season to the next? Would that be on young non-fruiting wood?

Lori:

Yes, that's correct...they may keep some of their leaves from year to year.
However, the best flowering occurs when the trees go completely deciduous for a month or so.

On non-flowering wood, would be just new growth...the flowering spikes are developed on previous years growth tips. This is the reason why pruning should be done righ after blooming is finished.
