A friend gave me this plant several years ago, what is it

Louisiana, United States Us

The leaves are furry feeling. She told me it was some kind of tropical but it has only bloomed once and it was in the winter. The flowers were purple




I think that it's a Tibouchina. It is a tender plant and can't take any frost.

Tks Spritz - Went to the internet and that's what it is. I've put in the sun and will wait to see what happens. Thanks again
