Will a jacaranda tree grow in my yard in Texas?

I saw a jacaranda tree and fell in love with it. Will it grow in my yard in Texas?

I'm afraid that jacaranda (Jacaranda mimosifolia) is a bit too tender for your climate. This tropical tree does best where the temperature doesn't drop below 45F - and is better suited to areas such as Miami and San Diego. You can grow Texas mountain laurel (Sophora secundiflora), a tree native to your area. It produces violet-blue flowers in spring. It has similarly divided foliage, as well. Texas mountain laurel typically grows 35 feet tall and 20 feet across, and is hardy in Zones 7-10.
