My Favorite Plant
« on: March 27, 2022, 08:47:04 AM »
My favorite plant, depicted in my avitar, is Tibouchina urvelliana.

Unfortunately, for me, it is not hardy in zone 8b; but its close relative, Tibouchina grandiflora grows nicely.  I still grow Tibouchina urvelliana as an indoor/outdoor plant. Due to physical limitations, I find it very difficult to take photographs. It stays outside all year and only comes inside when temperatures drop below 25F; which only happens 10 or 15 days most Winters.

I am in USDA zone 8b where temperatures almost never fall below 15F  -9.4C.  Rainfall 50"+  but none  June-+September.  We seldom get snow; but when it comes we get 30" overnight.  soil is sandy loam with a lot of humus.  Oregon- where Dallas is NNW of Phoenix.

I'm at a loss to choose a favourite flower - I'll give it some thought- but I tend to the "one that opened its flower today is the best" school of thought!! ::) :P :-[

 Fickle ? Me? Well, maybe!!  ::)
