The beautiful Jacaranda trees are in full bloom all over the island in April and the one in front of my house is quite pretty.  It's a fast growing tree with spreading branches and the most beautiful blue-violet blossoms in the spring.

One of my all time favorite visual memories is Upcountry Maui and the haze of lavender jacaranda trees. Wish we could grow them here on the leeward side. =!=

Sonja, periwinkle was the color I was trying to think of -- thanks!

Barb, is it too hot where you are for the jacaranda? They are on the road to Kona but it is definitely at a higher elevation so probably a lot cooler than in Kona itself.

I just wish they would bloom more than once a year.
