This week I took some photos of our tiny Tibouchina, Groovy Baby

The tibouchina was a favourite of my grandfather

I am sure that it has a common name , however, Wikipedia and Google could not help me.

Growing about 45 centimetres high and spreading around 45 centimetres this plant definitely fits into the dwarf category.  Some years ago I planted dwarf mahogany (eucalyptus) near our house.  They were only supposed to grow about twelve to fifteen feet high.  When they passed through the thirty foot mark I discovered my supplier had ‘messed up’ the seeds…or the labels.
