Day 319 - Finally!

I've been waiting all summer for this new Tibouchina variety (Glory Bush
Tibouchina lepidota
) to be covered in blooms. The verbena and calibrachoa along the container have almost petered out, the coleus and sweet potato vine are plugging along, but this Tibuchina has hardly flowered until now. But I'm thinking it might just be worth the wait. I've grown the Princess Flower Tibouchina urvilleana in the past and had more blooms throughout the summer, but never have I had this full a display. Both these plants seem to do best in consistently moist soil.
