Iochroma cyanea
'Mr. Plum'

Iochroma cyanea Mr Plum

I planted this super fast grower outside my kitchen window, where it only gets a bit of AM sun & in one year it reached 10' tall – just what I wanted for blocking my neighbors view of me in my jammies! Blooms 12 months out of the year with extra large clusters of plummy-purple elongated trumpets. SO SIMPLE TO GROW, evergreen & clay tolerant, you can easily prune it into any appealing shape or cut it back any time once a year to keep it shorter. A hummingbird favorite!
