Tibouchina is a small shrub of the family of mélastomacées giving very decorative flowers. Originating in Brazil, there are some more than 200 species. I cultivated one of them in my veranda, I had the chance to see it flowering at the time of Christmas.

Bravo Jean Luc.
Were have I seen a flower just like this? :)
The composition is very rich with all the other elements that accompany the flower.

There are so many flowers in our tropical forests that it's difficult to remember if I have already seen one of this...
Yr shot is perfect. The wrinkles, the details, all clearly visible... the colors are great.
Good to know that that a brazilian specie flourishes in France in such a marvelous way.
