There are jacaranda all over Los Angeles County, and tis the season to enjoy these immense trees with their lovely soft lavender flowers that are so numerous, it appears the trees have no leaves.

Southern California, and especially the Long Beach area of Los Angeles County is especially noted for the proliferation of jacaranda in their neighborhoods.  They are also found in the Southeastern State of Florida.  These trees tend to bloom most often from May to the middle of July, when the weather is particularly warm.

The dainty lavender flowers give way to the ungainly looking brown seed pods that ensure the production of the next generation of these magnificent-looking and fast-growing trees.
