March is Tibouchina time you'll see them all in full flower across the Sydney area.
There are three main varieties

Tibouchina alstonville the tallest at approx 4m and 2-3m width and makes a great addition to a garden for autumn flowering which last for approx. 4weeks.

Tibouchina carol lyn smaller size plant approx. 1.5m x 1m has a distinctive white stamens lager flower than jules, carol lyn will flower twice a year and sporadic flowering the rest of the year.
Carol lyn responds well to pruning after a main flowering and fertilising after pruning.

Tibouchina jules is a smaller relative of alstonville, jules only grows to 1 m x 1 m well suited for a pot or in the garden and the flowers cover the plant completely at flowering time .
