Purple-flowering plants are prized in South Florida, and this little shrub will reward you with incredibly gorgeous royal-purple blossoms. Dwarf Tibouchina flowers appear on and off during the warmer months of the year.
Purple actually goes with everything – it’s especially showy mixed with yellows, oranges and white. And because this plant prefers a somewhat shaded spot, you can use it to create a pop of color in landscape areas that often have none.
