Tibouchina


This is one of my favorite bushes. Its leaves are large & velvety to the touch. And when it is in bloom it truly is a show-stopper. Drought tolerant and not fuzzy about soil-type. Easy to transplant as well.

One of my favorites, too! I don't have any of it at the moment though, my last one froze and didn't come back. But it's on my list to get again. I have to rub the leaves every time I walk by one.

Oh no...I hate losing plants to cold weather!

Next time you get one be sure to take some cuttings and root them in water as insurance. They root fairly easy.
