The Q&A Archives: tibouchina urvilleana

Question: i transplanted my tibouchina urvilleana and now it looks like it's dying there are some blooms on but my question is 1.did i shock it by transplanting maybe the wrong time of the year? or this normal for this plant to loose it's follage before it blooming season?

Answer: I suspect your Princess Flower is pouting because of the transplanting. Not to worry. Where these plants are grown outdoors and subject to frost that kills the tops back, they quickly resprout from the roots. So, even if yours dies back completely, it should recover in a few weeks. It is not normal for them to lose their leaves before they bloom so that, too, is a response to the transplanting. Just keep the soil moist but not soggy wet and keep it in a bright place. It should rebound soon. Enjoy!
