Deciduous flowering tree from South America producing abundant intense blue flowers. It is just as beautiful as the more widespread Jacaranda mimosifolia, but this is not common at all. J. cuspidifolia has darker flowers and denser foliage, it blooms 1-2 months later and then often opens a few flowers scattered out of season, it is easier to prune as it does not grow those unstoppable upright shoots. It igrows wild from Bolivia to Central Brazil to Northern Argentina.
We ship a robust, sun-grown plant, 1-3 years old, cultivated in a 18-20 cm pot, of variable height of 40-90 cm. We will always try to select a compact robust plant for you. If the height exceeds the shippable height, we will prune the plant before shipping. This is because some plants are too tall to fit in the box and also because the upper branches are too tender, so pruning will be helpful during the transit. It will surely grow back soon because it is a fast growing plant, commonly pruned in gardens. Depending on the season, this plant can be sent bare-rooted, with the roots wrapped in moist sphagnum or perlite. Be prepared to plant it in a pot of at least 20 cm, filled with good garden soil and place it in full sun, at 16-30 C.
