OK try not laugh. This is the only jacaranda tree I’ve seen in this country and it’s a very straggly pale specimen. Since the jacaranda is really at home in tropical and sub-tropical regions of central America and the Caribbean I don’t think it’s a wonder it grows at all in the temperate, at times nithering, north of England. (but see here for what these beauties can do when they really get going) It’s also been protected during the renovation of the Cleminson Hall site.
