What’s Blooming June

Jacaranda mimosifolia
“June Gloom” is the phrase used to describe the morning low clouds that are common here in Southern California from May to early July. It's this weather that favors the flowering of Jacaranda mimosifolia, a lavendar flowering South American tree that has been  planted all over the L.A. basin.
