    I bought 3 of these Tibouchina's Peace Baby in April 2014 and they are loosing their leaves profusely. I am in Naples, Florida and avid gardener. But new to the flora here. Is this normal after flowering? They are in a sunny location, planted with composted cow mixed with the existing sand , watered properly, well draining and fertilizer was applied after flowering. I have two standards of the purple variety, not grandilflora, and one has been showing curled up burnt leaves as well as dropping leaves. There is almost nothing left. I don't over water either. The other one looks so much better and 8 feet away in the same environment. It does exhibit the brown curled edges but there is so much more green leaves and appears healthier. Any input to what is happening? Virus?

    Hi Terri, The most common problem with Tibouchinas that causes browning and curling of the leaves is simply drying out. They have incredibly vigorous root systems. If you feel they have been well watered and not left to dry out at any point, it could perhaps be phytophthora in the soil. This is a fungal root problem that can cause a healthy plant to brown off and die. This problem is basically impossible for the home gardener to control. Tibouchinas are very susceptible to phytophthora. I hope this information helps.
