Winterizing Jacaranda Trees
Some planting zone maps have Austin in zone 8 and some in zone 9. I think the lower limit for Jacarandas are zone 9. Either way, my Jacaranda trees are going to have a tough time surviving their first central Texas winter. Below are the two Jacarandas that I planted in the spring this year. They have doubled in height to nearly 9 feet each. That's remarkable.

Has anyone grown Jacarandas or other similar zone trees successfully in Texas or other similar weather states? Can you share your winterizing techniques? I'm a new gardner and I'm eager to learn. My Jacarandas probably don't have a prayer in Austin but I'd like to do what I can to help them survive their first year. If you have any pictures of your Jacaranda trees, please post them. Thank you for the information.
