The Jacaranda trees (Jacaranda mimosifolia) are bringing their spectacular show to the Los Angeles area this week. I find the quite beautiful when in bloom, but some complain about the cleanup when the blossoms drop in a purple carpet on lawns and cars.

Blue Jacaranda
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Blue Jacaranda, Jacaranda mimosifolia more often known simply as the "Jacaranda", is a sub-tropical tree native to South America that has been widely planted elsewhere because of its beautiful and long-lasting blue flowers. Older sources give it the systematic name Jacaranda acutifolia, but it is nowadays more usually classified as Jacaranda mimosifolia. It is also known as the Black Poui, or as the fern tree. In scientific usage, the name "Jacaranda" refers to the genus Jacaranda, which has many other members, but in horticultural and everyday usage, it nearly always means the Blue Jacaranda.
