Because he's a troll

It doesn't matter if they a frost free winter this year, Jacaranda need to get big before they can take brief cold snaps, so they will always be cut back or killed, so no they probably wont survive, not long term anyway...

And that is where the heat and humidity that the South has for long periods of the year comes into play. Long, equatorial-style summers in places like Houston, New Orleans, Jacksonville, etc help to beef the plants up fast, allowing them to weather out the effects of winter should a cold-snap come.

The Southeastern US summer is to plants what anabolic steroids are to athletes.
You were banned for very good reason & will continue to be banned...

If Jacaranda could grow there do you not think people would grow it there? As Tom has already pointed out, gardeners have tried, without success... And Jacaranda do not need hot summers anyway.

Well, then those gardeners have to try harder. While hot summers aren't necessarily a need, they provide the extra "seasoning" that beefs jacarandas up fast, so that are big enough to ride out any cold spells that come down.

Furthermore, I believe that smudge-pots can be used for extra heat, in case they are needed.
Smudge pots in the suburbs? Sounds like neighbours at war stuff.

I read that some people consider them a nuisance because of their leaves falling.

And you think re-joining with a new account on a daily basis is going to show the Mods you have changed? lol...

Why can you not just accept that they cannot grow there? It doesn't mean it is any less of a climate because it is not suited to one particular tree...

So no one has planted one in New Orleans because everyone thinks the falling leaves are a nuisance?

That's like saying no one has planted a coconut palm because they are worrried about falling coconuts lol...

Some goes for citrus -modern cultivars are such fast producers, that they will be fruiting in the first year. It doesn't matter if they die after five years.
From what I've seen on the forums here you don't get citrus that taste worth anything until about five years. Growth really isn't that rapid based on what I've seen.

Exactly what Dan gill said. People love those trees, and they would be planted all over the place if it was worth it. It isn't and that is why you just don't see them.

I guess people in Minnesota need to "try harder" to plant palms.

Well it kind of does mean it is somewhat of a sub par subtropical climate when it can't grow a beautiful subtropical tree like that. And that isn't the only beautiful subtropical plant that thrives in all the other subtropical climates except the South US.

How hard should they try? lol... I have looked online & there are lots of people on gardening forums from New Orleans who have tried growing them, but they are not long term there. What else do you expect them to do? Build a greenhouse to keep one?...
