The Jacarandas Are Blooming Again [Add Your Photos]

Studio City and much of the east Valley have been in a sea of purple, with the jacaranda trees blooming longer than usual. They can be a nuisance though.

Jacarandas bathed Studio City, Valley Village, Sherman Oaks, Encino and parts of North Hollywood in a sea of purple again.

 Dr. Stephen Berglund, a Valley Village chiropractor, wanted to remind Studio City Patch about the blooming trees again. They have caused him some trouble in the past, other than being outside with a broom under his two big trees.

He said, "I blame my car getting totalled because of the jacaranda. They were falling all over my car. Look at my lawn, it looks purple, and I parked my car on the street instead of in my driveway and someone rear-ended it." "I blame the jacaranda trees in my yard," Berglund kidded.

"But they are beautiful." (Flip through the photo gallery and see Dr. Berlgund, too. You can post)

Whose jacarandas bloomed in December or January? Is it possible that's a typo and you all mean six weeks? Ours in Encino usually drops its first few flowers the first or second week in may and really gets cooking right about now and lasts another two or three weeks. It will drop a flower or two as late as October! Interestingly, the jacarandas south of The Valley are two weeks or more ahead of us. We do love them event though we tented part of the driveway for the jacaranda season!
