Glory bush (Tibouchina urvilleana) is native to northeastern Brazil, and so it thrives in the bright sun, heat, and humidity of Chicago summers. Royal purple flowers 5 inches in diameter cover this large, velvet-leaved shrub throughout most of the growing season. Glory bush will tolerate partial shade but flowers best in full sun, and it needs moist soils.
