Seedling Update

Just a short post today.  My seedling are doing really well. Everything that sprouted seems healthy and has been growing rapidly.  A few more of the Jacaranda are starting to pop up.  I was worried I'd only get the one sprout but I'm glad to see more coming.

Delonix regia (Royal Poinciana)

Jacaranda mimosifolia (Jacaranda)

Schizolobium parahybum (Brazilian Tower Tree)


  1. I am passionate about Jacaranda! I admire the tree so much.
    Unfortunately I have a terrace garden!

  2. I live in Northwest Ohio (USA) and in Sept. 2011 I planted Jacaranda seeds I brought back from California (visiting my sister). All of the seeds sprouted and one grew to be at least five feet tall by this spring. Suddenly, it dropped all its branches and died (I thought). I cut the stem down to about 12" and this morning I noticed new growth sprouting. I have about seven others that are doing very nicely and are at various heights: 18" to about 5 feet. I have one outside on my patio for the summer and it gets bright light all day and direct sun for a few hours. It looks beautiful. I'll take it back to the greenhouse in the fall and I hope it will bloom next spring.


Thanks for contributing!
