Tibouchina urvilleana

<< PREV Image 1 of 2 NEXT >>

Tibochina is a subtropical shrub which is a die-back perennial in all but essentially frost-free areas. It has velvety textured leaves with prominent veins and very showy deep purple flowers. Foliage may become red in fall before being killed by frost. In zone 8 it is a good idea to plant in a sheltered sunny spot and to mound 10 inches of coarse sand over the crown of the plant before the first freeze. A mulch of pine straw can be removed in spring and the sand hosed away to allow new shoots to emerge. Given rich soil and ample water, these plants will thrive and show off during hot summer weather.  It is native to Brazil
