I have always been a fan of tibouchina and had hunted for years to find the variegated form before finally locating it in Bob Brown's fine collection in England. The slowly growing, 2' tall mass of woody stems is clothed with velvety green leaves, each edged with a creamy border. Starting in late summer, the clumps of Tibouchina urvilleana 'Variegata' are topped with stunning 2" wide, dark purple flowers...an indescribable contrast. Although the green form is marginally hardy for us, we still don't have data on this gem, so stick to containers north of Zone 8 for now.
