Jacaranda mimosifolia - Jacaranda Tree


Jacaranda mimosifolia - Jacaranda Tree (Jacaranda mimosifolia - Jacaranda Tree)

Jacaranda is in the top 5 most planted trees in San Diego, CA. Almost everyone has one of these trees. If you don't have one the City of San Diego will give one for free. It is extremely common as a street tree. Right now these trees are going through their late summer early fall bloom which is not as spectacular as the spring bloom.

Marguerite,
