The Jacaranda is a sub-tropical tree native to Central and South America. It has been planted around the world for its beautiful clusters of trumpet like flowers. The name is believed to be from Guarani origin, meaning fragrant. "According to an Amazon legend, a beautiful bird called Mitu landed atop a Jacaranda tree, bringing a beautiful indigenous priestess with it. The priestess, called Daughter of the Moon, descended from the tree and lived among the villagers. She shared with them her knowledge, wisdom and ethics, showing them the difference between good and evil. After she fulfilled her mission, she returned back to the tree adorned in Jacaranda blooms and ascended to the heavens where she united with her promised one, the Son of the Sun, who had fulfilled a similar mission in another part of the jungle."
