Tibouchina heteromalla (syn grandifolia)

An evergreen shrub with wonderful exotic foliage, the spires of rich purple flowers appear from early autumn through the winter. For this reason, and because Tibouchina heteromalla is slightly tender it is best protected under glass during the winter in UK (min +1c). It can like other Tibouchina be cut back hard after flowering. There does seem some confusion as to the correct name, this came from Madeira where it was labeled up as T. grandifolia but a Californian plantsman thinks it is heteromala? I can see little difference with online pictures
