Can anyone identify this Tibouchina with white flowers? The original plant came from a caravan park near Macksville in NSW.

Tibouchina 'Totally Moonstruck" might be the one...it was a sport in NZ and it hasn't reverted...it was released a few years ago..
Though I found another called Elsa..it's smaller growing..both very pretty...

These white flowers are small - about 2cm across. The stamens are insignificant - about 3mm long and are not purple. Some of the flowers are pink around the base and some are white. I hope this extra information helps identify this variety of Tibouchina.

Ian Percy from Florez Nursery at Wollongong has identified my Tibouchina with small white flowers as Tibouchina heteromala.
Thank you, Ian.
