Plant Finder: about the Iochroma genus

Description

Iochroma genus. These are soft-wooded shrubs with arching branches that are best suited to warm, humid climates. The evergreen shrubs will carry clusters of long tubular flowers which will bloom in shades of blue, purple, red or white throughout the summer and autumn. They are frost tender, min 7-10C and will need full light or partial shade in fertile well drained soil.

Cultivation

Tip prune young plants to stimulate a bushy habit. Cut back flowered stems by half in late winter.

    Cannot say at present but will put a list on when I start thinking about new specimens in the spring. Also I will list germinating seeds and cuttings that have successfully rooted then.
