My Manacá this morning. This is a native from São Paulo, where I live.
Flowers open in white, get pink at noon and die purple in the evening, so one gets the three colours at the same time during the day.
from Wikipedia:
"Tibouchina mutabilis is an evergreen tree with an open crown that grows in Brazil , mainly at the Serra do Mar zone.
Also known as glory bush in Australia, where it is a popular ornamental plant.
In Brazil, it is named Manacá-da-serra."

Many have tried before me. And failed.
The leaves are very difficult to reduce, and the flowers impossible.
I have learned my lesson a long time ago; if others more experienced than me say "don't do it", I'd better listen to them.
