Tibouchnia urvilleana (Purple Glory Tree)

Tibouchina urvilleana (Purple Glory Tree, Princess Flower)

Located in the same display pot as the Phymosia umbellata, featured in the blog entry 11th September, the Tibouchina urvilleana is putting on an equally stunning display of its own. Also known as the Purple Glory Tree or the Princess Flower, this tender, evergreen shrub has soft, hairy stems and leaves, satin like purple flowers with hooked stamens being thrust out from their centre.
