This is a brug cousin so not totally OT. This is Iochroma Royal Queen sent to me by Kylie last year - thanks! She is blooming, and boy, what a dark 'royal' purple! I just now took the pictures when I spotted the bloom and am so excited!
Congrats Eloise! It's beautiful! That color is awesome! Thank you for sharing such great pics!
Great color and I like the fluted blooms
Ohhh Eloise, that is a great color. Enjoy your Iochroma!
It is purdy purdy :) I really have come to like the iochromas. I have one like yours in the gh somewhere... I hope I can find it in the spring (that will be whenever I decide to drag everything out lol) I am sure it has died back a bunch.
I have had several blooming on and off all Winter.. I really love them.. Nice pic's Eloise..That is one of my Fav's
Lanette Nice to see here..âºâº
those are Georgeous,I love the color, you have done well with them
Oh, you have winter blooms. That is one nice thing about the iochromas, they keep blooming. That one is beautiful!
Thanks all, I really love the color on it! My larger iochroma has a lighter colored flower, but not blooming right now, go figure. Both are in pots, but I might plant them in the ground come spring. Don't know if the gophers would love the roots so will plant in a deeper pot and cut out the bottom before sinking in the ground.
Thanks again Kylie! BTW, did your m. Williams survive? Mine looks ratty because of winter, but know it will start getting new leaves soon!
It is dormant so it will be a little longer before I can drag them out and see..It was one the cows ate on..but the crom wasn't damaged..
Kylie do you happen to have cuttings of the Iochroma? seeds? Marcie
Marcie I don't right now but will probably come Spring/Summer
LOL Kylie, your cows have good taste!
Beautiful color Eloise !
I have to start growing Iochroma and dats.
I have one of this plant but the flowers are cluster. Thank God it survide the winter frost this year and got quite big. I going to trim it and train it to a small tree like. How do you propagate this plant?
