The Q&A Archives: Tibouchina

Question: We were watching the Gardeners Journal about a gentleman's garden in Oregon and saw this beautiful plant I am not sure of the spelling of the name. It was a container grown
tree form plant called "Tubachina" it had purple flowers and was approximately 6-8ft tall. Do you know what it is and where I can purchase one in my area.

Answer: I wonder if you are referring to Tibouchina, also called "Glory Shrub". There are many varieties of Tibouchina, the supplier below carries quite a few:
