RE: Need help with Tibouchina

I have a few in pots. I give them morning sun and filtered afternoon sun/shade. I have the variety with the large round leaves so they definitely need a little shade in the afternoons.
You could try moving them around in pots to see where they like it best before planting them. I just fertilize mine with MG or whatever I am fertilizing everything else with. I water them when they are dry. Protect them from frost in the winter.
