I bought this plant in spring as a basket stuffer. It is now 4"feet tall. Very attractive. Could somebody tell me what is it?




Looks like a Tibouchina, a tender, south American shrub.

Thank you Badfish. That is it. Now I wonder what it was doing in basket stuffers lot. I do not think we can grow it here successfully. I love it though. Very attractive flowers and leaves. Thanks again for the ID.

You're very welcome Klahanie,

Maybe you could bring it inside and cut it back and keep it cool for the winter. Nothing to lose really.

I've had one in the conservatory for a couple of years so if you want you could bring it in.

Stunning colour.

Thanks for your comments Seaburngirl and Cammomile.
I wonder how much water does it need in winter...we will be away for 5 months.

Perhaps someone could look after it for you or come in to water?
