Well I was in Brookings Oregon this weekend my daughter has this tree in front of her house but we cannot figure out what kind of tree it is. Do any of you know the name of this beautiful flowering tree is, she said that blooms all year round.

Oh yes they are, I've never seen such a beautiful color. They have many beautiful trees in Brookings that bloom all year.

It's a Tibouchina organensis. We sell them and their beautiful counterpart Tibouchina urvellana at the nursery I work for. Here in the U.K. They are not hardy and flower from now until the new year. I always get loads in because they can be a wonderful source of indoor colour through the gloomiest months and then go back out in the summer. Always used as a small shrub here. I can imagine the trees are a sight to behold

This tree is quite old the base has to be at least 20 in in diameter.


I saw something similar here the other day that I've never seen before.

I will have to do that thank you very much


I poked around on Google and found this. Is it a Blue Glory Tree? [kensnursery.com]

Oh, maybe the flowers are a little different. Hard to tell on the nursery website.

Thank you very much I appreciate it and I will let her know what it's called.

PS Great pics. It's a really beautiful tree. smile001.gif

The lady in the UK nursery says they aren't hardy .

@Cast1es that s ok it is an 8b growing zone in Victoria,B.C. ..not like the rest of Canada at all ...palm trees grow here ,olives,lemons

I was the head of horticulture at Arbutus Ridge Golf Club. I had one and just kept it in a pot and brought it in to the greenhouse in the winter. I haven't worked there for a bit, but definitely still could be there, it was quite happy.


It is beautiful, and I haven't got a clue.
