Jacaranda are trees that initially come from South and Central America. They’re known as tropical trees because of their color and ability to live best in areas that remain warm for most of the year. However, many places have started to find the best locations for them because of their attractive and long-lasting pale indigo flowers. 

The flowers are either lavender or blue and have a foot-long, pyramid shape. They grow in clusters, which give them the regular tree leaf look. You would think that they give off a strong fragrance, but you can hardly smell them. They also take at least a month to bloom once they are grown. When it comes to planting a Jacaranda, you can wait anywhere from seven to 25 years for the flowers to start blooming.
