    To those of us familiar with Jacaranda mimosifolia, this is a wonderful discovery. They even have flowers the same color.

    I’m in California and Jacarandas are everywhere….but none so intriguing as this. Thank you, Daniel and Prof. Alves. As I get older, I’m more appreciative of these old flora!

    It is remarkably difficult to accurately age clonal trees.

    The Jacaranda really stands out in its adaptation to the environment.

    So interesting, thank you. I love discovering ‘sympatric’ too.
    What, please, is the folk medicinal use that you say contributes to stress on the species?

    Yep, this is it! This is what I love about Botany Photo of the Day. What a wonderful post. Thank you for today and always.

    Amazing! I remember jacaranda trees lining the streets of sao Paulo, likely a different species?

    Now this poor soul is wondering what constitutes a tree and shrub? I know what I learned as a child. 🙂

    A most interesting post.

    Such an epiphany! Had I heard of such unusual plants most anywhere else, I doubt I would have believed that they really exist. I’ve always loved Canada for its nature and natural beauty. The UBC Botanical Garden certainly provides a nimiety of information to (in my case) the overly curious. Thank you for yet another awe-inspiring posts from the Land-Up-Over.
