With the advent of spring in Los Angeles, purple trees are blossoming everywhere—this is the jacaranda. It is so beautiful! You may stroll the streets getting a crazy aesthetic pleasure. Jacaranda is one of the favourite decorative elements of the design of streets, squares, and public gardens in Los Angeles. You will see magnificent violet trees everywhere: on the corner of Hope and Flower Streets in downtown, at Ayres Avenue in Westwood, on the corner of Woods and Wilshire in Old Town Fullerton, at Miracle Mile, on Beverly Hills residential streets, on Stansbury Street, or Dixie Canyon Avenue near Valley Vista Boulevard in Sherman Oaks.

Jacarandas in Bloom in Los Angeles - Best Season

Jacaranda blossoms are abundant in late spring, from late April through to early June. If the air temperature in the beginning of spring is high, jacarandas may start blooming in March. Some time ago, jacarandas used to bloom twice a year with the secondary season occurring around September. However, due to certain climate changes, the trees are less likely to bloom in the fall nowadays.
