  • Jacaranda mimosifolia (blue jacaranda)


A pocket-size explosion of colour

Just imagine roaming the beautiful botanical footpath at our four-star campsite Les Jardins de La Pascalinette ®, hunting for new plant marvels to discover, then coming face to face with an explosion of strikingly dazzling colour around the corner of one of the campsite’s verdant alleys… Welcome to the Blue jacaranda, a shrub as gorgeous as its name suggests!

A renowned deciduous subtropical tree, the Jacaranda mimosifolia is also known as the jacaranda, blue jacaranda, black poui, Nupur or fern tree. Its leaves harbour stunning blue blooms that blossom in large panicles at the end of winter and again at the start of summer or even autumn. So, campers who holiday with us outside peak season can enjoy it too!

A beauty that has conquered the world

Native to South America, this magnificent ornamental tree is now found in several areas of the world, including the Mediterranean coast, Corsica, Japan and Nepal. It has also conquered parts of South America, North America, South Africa and the Maghreb, as well as Australia.

This compact shrub adds a touch of magic to every garden, bringing an unexpected splash of dazzle to even the smallest spaces.

Much more than just a simple shrub, it is an explosion of joy and colour, transforming our gardens into a genuine Coin de Paradis ® (Corner of Paradise)!
