Tibouchina urvilleana, commonly known as Princess Flower, Glory Bush or Lasiandra, is a charming species of flowering plant that belongs to the Melastomataceae family. This evergreen shrub can grow up to 3 metres tall and wide, making it an eye-catching addition to any garden. Its large, velvety, oval, dark green leaves with pronounced veins form a lush background for the bright purple flowers, which bloom mainly from late summer to early autumn.

Tibouchina urvilleana thrives in tropical to subtropical climates, prefers warm temperatures and does not tolerate frost. It thrives in full sun to partial shade and grows best in well-drained, slightly acidic soil. Regular watering is important, especially during dry periods, although it does not tolerate waterlogging. Pruning helps to maintain the shape and encourages more abundant flowering.

Tibouchina urvilleana is recognised for its ornamental value and is often used in gardens and landscapes, where its beautiful flowers and lush foliage are shown to their best advantage. It is also well suited for container planting, making it a versatile choice for patios or indoor spaces with sufficient light.
