Jacarandas are landscape plants. They are big trees and suitable as stand-alone specimen tree in large gardens and parks; as large anchor for garden bed; along urban streets, as shade trees; lining the property border (where growing over a neighbour’s yard won’t be a problem) along both sides of a large driveway to create an overhead arching effect.
Legend has it that if you are walking underneath the Jacaranda tree and one of the trumpet blossoms falls on your head you will be favored by fortune.
