Dazzling Jacaranda, Haleakala Maui

Dazzling Jacaranda, Haleakala Maui

Blue Jacaranda trees in full dress line the hillside at higher elevation on the road to Haleakala, Maui, putting on a dazzling display of color. Along with their amazing flowers, the Jacaranda has a sweet smell that softly floats through the air during bloom. Jacaranda most often bloom between April and May, just in time for May Day in Hawaii, known as “Lei Day.”

The Jacaranda was introduced to Hawaii and several other Polynesian islands from Central and South America. The trees are primarily decorative, although in Hawaii their medium-brown wood is crafted into fine furniture and cabinetry.

About Rob DeCamp

I am a professional photographer living on Maui, in the State of Hawaii. I made my living shooting weddings, but now have shifted my energy to nature photography. What started as a hobby, has now become my passion. I love to explore nature, and capture the ever changing colors and shapes that I find. No matter how many times I go back to the same place, it never is the same. The lighting, the weather all change to give me a different feeling. I think that is what inspires me to keep shooting!

  1. Aloha Rob… I don’t know if you remember but my name is Sonja. We were the couple that were doing Maui Made Craft shows about 8 years ago. So glad to see you still there! I had to show my sister a picture of the Jacaranda trees on Maui .
