Tibouchina grossa - BSWJ10758

Pot Size: 7.5 litre
Price: £50.00
Quite a different beast from the conventional conservatory plant commonly grown, differing not just by colour, but by hardiness as well. Originating from one of our collections gathered from one of the high Paramos of Colombia, which experience a drop in temperature to below freezing on many nights, but only briefly. Here it forms small to medium sized shrubs equally tall as wide with slender branches bearing the orbicular soft-textured foliage with the ubiquitous impressed venation. Bearing in the growing season, pillar-box red bowl-shaped to saucer-shaped flowers. Best grown in good light that is not too hot, in a well-drained soil with a bit of moisture retention. Only exposing to freezing conditions for short periods. This family is not known to be hardy.
