Our Jacaranda tree looks rather grand from this angle but move around about 90 degrees and you’d see that half the tree is missing, thanks to the way it has been trimmed to allow for the power lines that run past it. We’ve lived here for almost 3 years, the tree was planted and being cut well before we arrived.
Every year it generously drops it’s beautiful mauve flowers to decorate the yard with, as well as those large round pods containing the papery seeds. They fall on our lawn and never become new little trees.
I’ve collected and planted some of the seeds in a pot filled with ordinary potting mix and a few actually germinated (shown above). These grandbabies will be the first of many I’ll grow.
