Is this Iochroma?

Dear Gulf Coasters,

Here's my first plea for your expertise.

Iochroma has come up a couple of times. I've been trying to identify the purple trumpets dripping among the rose bush in this photo for years. Could they be Iochroma? How large do they (or should they) get? The pix is from Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. I'm guessing the rose is at least 6'.

If this is Iochroma I want one! If not, any ideas what this is?

Monica, every time I try to download your post, the picture just shows up as a box with a red "X" in it.
Here's a link to a picture of some purple iochroma - does it look like the plant in your picture?
