A tibouchina is one of my favorite plants, it is also known as a Princess Flower. It is a deep rich purple. It is also a shade lover...part sun, part shade. I have two of them in my garden. They get loaded with this beautiful purple blooms.
Some other things in the garden.....my $3 rose from Big Lots, Royal Highness. Can't wait for her to fully bloom.
My first daylily of the year.
The clematis is coming along. It blooms everyday.
and last but not least, the first caladium is peeking up! ( I just noticed the plastic wrapper in this photo....not sure what it is are where it came from. People are always littering and it blows into my yard! Annoying!)
