Jacaranda mimosifolia October is the flowering time of the Jacarandas (Jacaranda mimosifolia). Originally it grows in Brazil and this is where it's strange name comes from. But for it's beauty it was introduced to Africa and pretty much any country with a suitable climate. And that includes Australia, where the town of Grafton celebrates a jacaranda festival for them each year.
