Big Leaf Tibouchina is also called Silver Leafed Princess Flower. It is a tropical plant with large, round velvety silver leaves. The blooms are a spectacular purple flower cluster that forms a cone on the tops of the branches. A true tropical, it must be in warm temps and out of direct sunlight. It can be a large shrub or small flowering tree, likes moist, well-drained soil and only an hour or two of morning sun at most.
