This was a totally, as in TOTALLY, new plant to me until just a few weeks ago.

Tibouchina urvilleana
aka   Glory Bush

Isn’t it magnificent? It can grow to be about 3-6 Ft. wide and high. I bought it at a very good nursery in Chapel Hill where I was told it would be fine in our zone. But when I go on line all the sites seems to indicate it’s hardiness in Zone 10-11 which is Florida. So…we will see. I’ll be sure to cover it on cold nights. But if it does well and is alive and well next spring, I will most certainly buy another one or two!











What a gorgeous color.

Happy weekend to everyone!
