Re: Tibouchina

Wonderful, Jim!!  It is always such a thrill to finally have a plant  bloom 
after years of hoping.   I had the regular more common Princess  Flower for 
years that would flower religiously.  It then died while we were  gone, and had 
no rain.  I saw one, forgot the species, with much larger  foliage, almost 
dinner plate size.....have had it now for at least three  years....but it has YET 
to bloom, unfortunately. 
This past weekend, at a friend's house, Jerry's Jungle, I saw a Tibouchina  
that was very intriguing.  I had never seen or heard of it before.  He  didn't 
recall the species name, and I haven't had time to look it up.
It was unlike any of the others I had seen.  Was more of a trailing or  low 
shrub, much smaller foliage, and highly variegated.  Quite  interesting.  I was 
told the blooms are similar to a "regular"  Tib.   He had just gotten it this 
spring.    Have you  seen or heard of this species??

Our  Tibouchina [granulosa or urvilleana, I don't know which] is getting 
set to  bloom for the first time at the plantation. We've had it for 
about 3  years. It had two flowers on it when we bought it at a plant 
fair, but it  left the fair in the back of the pickup and was flowerless 
by the time we  got home.
