Anyone know a local (Englewood/Venice) nursery that carries a Jacaranda?

You might want to try Sea Oats in Englewood or possibly Hazeltine in Venice.

Thanks, SoFLGal! Looking to pick up a few fruit tree and small palms as well. If we do some citrus , we'll be around to harvest it in the winter, right?

It depends on what you're getting. They all come due at different times. There are a couple months in the summer that you many not have them producing. Where ever you buy it they will tell you when the specific fruit makes fruit.

Most nurseries will have Jacarandas. Make sure you buy one that is old enough to actually bear flowers (I don't think they do until they're 4 years old or so) if you want them to be "pretty" the first year.

just one note....they get VERY large so make sure you have a large enough spot to plant one. I love them but will have to settle for looking at the ones I see around town as I don't have room for a tree that large.

What kind of fruit does a Jacaranda tree make? I believe she's talking about the one that makes purple flowers and big seed pods.
