Varda, it's beyond beautiful!! Thanks so very much for showing, so glad you have it next to you and are able to enjoy it!!
Yes, they are seed pods. I think they are left over from last year.
this is beautiful. I have never heard of it. What are those round things hanging from it. Seed pods?
That is a magnificent tree! I've never seen one, but this thing is gorgeous. I'd be dedicated, too if this was the end result. Thanks so much.
Now that's what I call dedication!
I am in Central Florida. Down around Miami, they are far more common. We are one planting zone too cold for them. I have babied mine for several years now. They are too big to go inside my utility room anymore during winter, so I have them on wheeled platforms and I shove them across my back sidewalk and under the shelter of a big old Japanese plum tree to try to protect them. They are in big pots about 3 across and nearly that deep.
This one is about 50-60 miles east of L.A.
Where is this tree, Plumpossum? I'm curious, as I grew up with one. As a girl, it was my job to rake and sweep the blossoms off the grass and sidewalk in Los Angeles, California. They're really beautiful trees, and they liven up a street.
That's interesting, Sue! I had never thought to try growing a jacaranda from seed; maybe I will try it with seeds from this tree. Where do you live?
I love Jacaranda trees...too cold for them here according to the planting zones. But there are 3 large ones in towns nearby. I have 2 in huge pots that I have grown from seeds. They are about 12 feet tall. This is a gorgeous one, whether neglected or not.
This is the poor neglected orphan that nobody claims. I guess I'll start giving it a little tlc.
