Hey everyone, herbert baker Street in Pretoria is a very popular street in Gauteng Province RSA come Summer.

These rare white Jacaranda Trees are a popular glorious sight in October.

A few of these pics have both the pretty common purple flower Jacaranda and the rest glorious snow white Jacaranda tree the far less common sibling.

Below we have a bougainvillea tree growing on the white Jacaranda a rather interesting and pleasant contrast indeed.

These few purple trees were taken riding through the city in Brooklyn on the way to view the white Jacaranda trees in herbert baker street.

I got really lucky on this fine day as to have a lovely mild, mid clear skies which make an incredible canvas-backdrop.

I never knew there was a white variety! Stunning photographs of these beautiful trees. Although I am not longing back for those streets, as I grew up south from there in Vanderbjilpark! Moved to the Cape about 10 years ago, and even though we only have sparse Jacaranda trees, I prefer it down here haha. Funny thing, the street name on which my childhood house stood was Jacaranda street, but there were no Jacaranda trees! Funny. Anyways, awesome photographs!

Hi @fermentedphil! I also moved to the Cape 10 years ago (and a bit!) But I left the streets of Pretoria many many years ago. I also don't long back for it - actually I am happy never to return. Sorry, I love you @craigcryptoking but your one and only fault is thinking that it is the most amazing city ever. Blah!!

Stunning Jacaranda! I didn't know there was anything except the purple ones

Glad I wasn't the only one thinking it was only purple.

And, yes, totally! The Cape (with all the wine) is the best! No, just kidding. The nature and lifestyle here are so much more chilled and nice.

Great to hear from you here!

I didn't know there was a white variety either. Rare sort of like the white mulberry, huh. I first saw these trees in the city of Zamora in Mexico. I've never seen so many like that down a street before though. It's so beautiful! I've been growing a small one in a pot for a few years.
