There are over 300 species of Tibouchina. Tibouchina multiflora has huge leaves(up to 10" in diameter), velvet and "hairy" - nice to touch -they tend to turn orange/red at the lower part of the trunk. Tibouchinas are tropical and subtropical plants. The frost kills the plant to the ground, and it grows back in the spring. They are covered with flowers durning several months, at the end of summer. After each blooming cycle, prune and fertilize with fertilizer for acid loving plants. The Tibouchinas like a good proportion of organic content in the soil.
