Saw this plant on a garden tour. Unknown name. Leaves were hairy and very defined. It grew about 4' tall and this plant was very spindly. The owner said it was a tropical plant.

Hi Lynne. Looks very much like Tibouchina commonly called Princess Flower. I can't say which one though. There are many.
