Tree Atlas of Panama. A medium-sized, alien tree.
Trunk is straight, crown wide, round, and typically reaching near the ground. Leaves are twice compound — divided into leaflets, each of which is divided again into ‘subleaflets’. The overall leaf is thus fern-like. Leaflets are tiny and pointed.
Jacaranda caucana Pittier
The leaves are opposite, leaflets are opposite, and subleaflets are opposite. Flowers are large and deep purple, produced when trees are leafless during the dry season. Fruits are woody capsules.
Generally found only in yards, widely planted, especially numerous in Gamboa. Seldom seen in forest or even at forest edge, although two of our forest plots at Cocoli across jacaranva Panama City have Jacaranda caucana.
The fine, fern-like doubly-compound leaves, combined with opposite leaves meaning each whole leaf structure is opposite another leaf structuredistinguish this species from all others except the native LK jac1co Jacaranda copaia.
LK2 The latter has somewhat larger leaflets, though, and is not seen in yards often at the forest edge, cacuana. There are a number of legumes with doubly compound leaves that grow in towns, native and alien, but all have alternate leaves.
Planted for the showy purple flowers.
Copa redondeada y con follaje disperso. Tronco ramificado a baja altura, a veces ligeramente acanalado.
