This beautiful tree, which gives such splendid effects in the warmer portions of this State, is a native of Brazil and should, to do well, be given generous treatment and a warm situation away from strong winds. It grows well in any garden soil which is not too stiff and heavy.

The Jacaranda is propagated by means of cuttings placed in a cold frame, during August, in soil composed of one-half sand and one-half leaf-mold. The cuttings should be shaded during strong sunshine until they form roots, and, when rooted, they should be planted in small pots and afterwards given larger pots as required.
