Once a year, for three days in January, people from around the nation visit Fort Lauderdale, Florida to see the natural beauty produced by local greenhouse and nursery growers. Over 200 vendors display their best under one roof for a tropical extravaganza.
‘Groovy Baby’ is a new, dwarf tibuchina showcased in the New Product area at TPIE. Go to my photo website for many more photos of new introductions. http://weedsandseedsdotorg.wordpress.com/
‘Hippie Dippie Tibbie’ is a new white flowered Tibuchina. You might be familiar with the blue/purple Princess Flower as a shrub or tree but here is a new color. This recent introduction was one of the newest plants in Florida, showcased at the Tropical Plant Industry Exhibit (TPIE) in Ft. Lauderdale last week.
