The Ubiquitous Jacaranda Tree

May 4, 2010

Jacaranda Tree

Pronunciation: \ˌja-kə-ˈran-də\
Etymology: New Latin, from Portuguese jacarandá a tree of this genus, from Tupi jakaraná, jakarandá
Date: circa 1753

    is any of a genus (Jacaranda) of tropical American trees of the bignonia family with bipinnate leaves and panicles of showy usually blue flowers. It’s native to tropical and subtropical regions of South America (especially Brazil), Central America, Mexico, and the Caribbean.

    In Africa, this beautiful flowering tree is everywhere. We thought it was appropriate to represent a social venture that aims to bring low-cost, high quality maternal health to all of East Africa through a network of ground and mobile clinics combined with innovative EMR and mobile technology.
