Answer: Tibouchina is also called Princess Flower. It's native to Brazil and grows outdoors in mild climates, but winters indoors in most of the country. The plant prefers cool roots and the tops in bright sunshine. If you're growing in a container, use an acid-based potting soil, and water regularly during the summer months. In the autumn bring the plant indoors and place in a brightly lit spot until the weather warms in the spring. Then take your plant outdoors again. To keep your plant bushy, pinch out the growing tips to promote additional flowering stems, and feed lightly after each bloom cycle.
