In France you would call this tree a flambouyant bleu. “Blue is a very difficult color to achieve in botany,” a horticulturist with the Los Angeles County Arboretum told the LA Times.  The Jacaranda would have to agree with said horticulturist, as its flowers are more of a bluish violet.  No matter how you call it, their cheer is abundant across our city streets.
