Every year Jacarandas on Maui begin to bloom in April and by May they have spread a cloak of purple over Upcountry Maui.
While great big blossoms depend from the sky, roadsides and lawns lay littered in purple confetti.
In places where other flowers also splash across the view, a parade of colors can enchant and lift the spirit above the daily rote.
Jacarandas, officially “mimosifolia”, are hardy plants that can thrive on very little water. They are sometimes even considered weeds.
Even the smallest Jacaranda, when pulled from the ground, has a tap root at least as long as it’s height above ground.
