Jacaranda Tree @ University of Sydney

Home > Sydney > Architecture | Free | Gardening | Gardens | Outdoor
Published November 21st 2012
This Jacaranda tree is located in the south-west corner of the Quadrangle at the University of Sydney. It was planted in 1927, in anticipation of the visit by the Duke of York. Often a target of a quick snap by those visiting for the first time, the tree flowers in spring, between October and November. Its blossoming signifies for the students of the University that it is time to start preparing and study for the final examinations. The soothing color of the Jacaranda tree helps calm the nerves of those who are lined up and waiting outside the examination rooms.
