Blooming of a Tibouchina urvilleana's purple flowers in Bogota
Tibouchina urvilleana

One of my favorites and always in bloom. Will not survive on the hot north coast. It is the number one Tibouchina species you will find in Florida, California and Hawaii. Can grow up to a small tree. Photographed in Bogotá.
