Description

Photographed in a front garden from over the fence. I couldn't get closer without entering the property. The flowers were spectacular in the evening sun.

Does anyone know the genus Tibouchina well enough to say what species this is? I see that there are 11 known in cultivation in NZ. Tibouchina urvilleana looks like a good match.
