Jacarandas were first grown in Sydney in the 1850s, but by the 1930s the trees were so common many confused the Brazilian native for a local plant. It grows so easily from fallen seeds that it is considered a pest in bushland areas, but try telling that to those who flock to the annual Jacaranda festival in Grafton on the NSW north coast, or McDougall Street in North Sydney, where tourists arrive by the busload each November to capture a colourful photograph.

Those little leaves get in everywhere, and if it rains, the flowers are slippery. Jacarandas are my favourite trees. They are beautiful, create wonderful environments in front and back gardens, tree-lined streets. They live in Melbourne and Australia. They can be found in Los Angeles, Washington and throughout USA, South Africa and many other countries. 👑🍀☘️
