I love the way the light is shining through the petals of the Tibouchina plant. Although it is frost tender it will survive in our cold climate with just a bit of protection from the frost. I like to have this plant in my garden because I can plainly remember the one that was growing near our backdoor when I was growing up. Every year it would be cut right back in winter but in spring, summer and autumn it would quickly grow into a strong healthy shrub covered with brightly coloured flowers.
