Iochroma

Does anyone grow Iochroma in zone 9? Someone was telling me that they struggle here. So, thought I would check here before I buy one.

Cleaned out a space in my garden and would love something large that flowers blue...so I was looking at Grandiflora.

I have a purple one in full sun that so far is doing well. I have had the other colors before though and lost them. I think it might be a short lived plant.
