“The Jacaranda City. From late September to middle November, Jacarandas bloom all over Pretoria and turn the face of the city purple. Pretorians love their Jacarandas and students from the University of Pretoria believe that if you are studying for your final year exams and a blossom falls on your head, you will pass your exams with flying colours. It is estimated that there are almost 70 000 Jacarandas growing around the many streets, parks and gardens of Pretoria.
During Madiba’s inauguration speech, on 10 May 1994 at the Union Buildings, he again referred to Jacarandas: To my compatriots, I have no hesitation in saying that each one of us is as intimately attached to the soil of this beautiful country as are the famous jacaranda trees of Pretoria and the mimosa trees of the bushveld. – Nelson Mandela”
