There are several jacaranda trees planted in the courtyard right before you pass underneath Spaceship Earth at Walt Disney World’s EPCOT theme park. May is the perfect time to catch the jacaranda in bloom. The flowers are a lovely shade of lavender and they give off the most subtly sweet scent.

The jacaranda is not a native of Florida, but close enough – it’s found in Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America and other subtropical and tropical regions of the world.

On the day I took these photos, I stood beneath the jacaranda breathing in the fragrance as blooms shook free in the breeze and rained down softly upon me. It was heaven!

  1. What a grat shot! Looks like the building is growing from the lovely flowers, beeing a part of the flowers arrangement! I like that! 🙂

  2. Beautifully taken! I am familiar with this jacaranda tree because when I winter in Arizona…they are in full bloom up and down the streets..the individual flowers are stunning..almost like an orchid but bigger!

  3. Hmmm. I love the smell of jacarandas. What a perfect spot where it is planted. We have them here too, but sometimes the fallen blooms could be slipery too. Great shot Tink!

  4. I love this picture. In Pretoria, South Africa there are many streets lines with Jacarandas, causing a purple haze when they bloom. Everything would be covered with fallen blooms. It’s so beautiful. Pretoria is therefore known as the Jacaranda City.

  5. What a beautiful shot….I LOVE walking into Epcot seeing and smelling these beautiful trees!
