What’s this plant with glossy leaves and violet flowers?
What is this shrub with violet flowers and green glossy long oval leaves? I’ve never seen such bush before. It’s quite spectacular in bloom with many beautiful violet flowers. Saw it in Europe. I want to know the name of this plant to grow it in my garden. Please, help me to identify it. Thanks a lot.
