SILVER LEAF TIBOUCHINA Princess Flower Rare Unique Tropical Plant Purple Blue Flower Late Summer Bloom Starter Size 4 Inch Pot Emerald Tm


14 reward points

Tibouchina heteromalla is one of more than 400 species ranging from low growers to large trees.  Most are native to South America.  Silver Leaf, Large Leaved Princess Flower or Panther Ear are some of the common names.  Botanically it is referenced as both Tibouchina grandifolia and Tibouchina heteromalla, and is often confused with Tibouchina granulosa and grandiflora, which are different species. It is one of the more rare and prized species.
It matures into a large 6-8 ft tall shrub, and is unique and showy all the time, with unique, extra large, fuzzy grayish green leaves with a soft velvety texture, but is truly spectacular in the late summer and early fall when large spikes of deep, vibrant. purplish blue flowers appear.  Blooms are large, five-petaled singles, born in clusters on long stalks above the main body of the plant.  The center color varies with age and begins as a white ring that ripens to a rosy fuschia maroon contrasting nicely with the bright purple blue.
