If you have ever felt the princess flower leaves, you would be amazed at the softness. At first, the flower did not "wow" me as much. I was more in love with its name "Princess Flower" than I was with the flower itself.
The Princess Flower brings back memories of a Christmas gathering a few years back. My broker at the time went all out, rented the entire restaurant. He bought nice gifts for everyone.
The purple princess flower is not as delicate as I thought. It can withstand full sun, replanting and re-potting. I moved this flower three times because I couldn't decide on the best place for its beauty and its use. The third time was into a large pot to be placed on one of my back patios. A few times my Tibouchinas looked dried out and done, but some how it always bounces back in the spring.
Because of my indecisiveness she had suffered a bit, but it is great to finally see the flower so happy and regenerating so well in the pot. It has to be one of the most happy plants I have in my plant kingdom. Please don't get overly excited about my kingdom, if you know Silicon Valley, land isn't measured by acres.
I have not had to do much pruning or fertilizing with it since it has been in this pot. I believed I found the right spot and the right medium for the flower. It is flourishing and continues to produce flowers even in these strange temperatures we had lately.
Thanks for stopping by today.
