Tibouchina urvilleana is decorative plant thanks to its large blue/purple flowers that add that tropical touch to any garden. As Tibochina prefers a frostfree location, it is best kep as a potted plant. In summer, especially during the warmest periodes, this container plant requires extra water and occasionally extra fertilizer. Tibouchina can handle pruning, so you can cut away parts of the plant if it grows too large. By removing old flowers, you can enhance the growth of a full and volumous plant.
