The problem with the climbing Tibouchinas is the stems are fragile and easily broken.
They need frost-free conditions to thrive, although they are fairly cold-tolerent living in conditions of forty degrees Fahrenheit with some varieties able to withstand temperatures as low as 25 degrees Fahrenheit.
Tibouchina Preferred Growing Conditions
Tibouchinas prefer full sun unless you are growing them in greenhouse conditions or it is unusually hot, in which case they prefer a bit of shade during the hotteset part of the day.
They also prefer light, fertile soil with regular fertilizing and even a bit of compost regularly.
Although some species flower year-round, most have two blooming cycles a year, from June to September and again from December to March.
They should be pruned after blooming to ensure new blooms and keep them full.
