Iochroma Empress Iochroma 'Empress'
Code: 90301
Price: $10.95

Quantity in Basket: none

Iochroma 'Empress' is a new interspecies hybrid between Iochroma australe 'Alba' and Iochroma cyaneum. It has the long tubular flowers of I. cyaneum in the rare color of white with a slight flaring bell shape from I. australe. Its slightly fuzzy light pink buds open to long white flowers with wide flaring bells. It differs from our new introduction Iochroma 'White Knight' in that its flowers are always white in all light conditions and the flowers are much larger and have much more flaring bells. Also, it seems to be more upright and larger growing than 'White Knight'. So far, the blooming habit seems to be to put out long stems with a large cluster at the tip followed by smaller weeping side shoots with smaller numerous clusters. Much more trainable than pure I. cyaneum, this type can be trained to be low and spreading or trained up to be a tall specimen. Like most iochromas, it seems to be in some state of bloom all year. Exclusive. (Thompson) Solanaceae

Iochroma Purple Prince Iochroma 'Purple Prince'
Code: 90310
Price: $10.95

Quantity in Basket: none

Iochroma 'Purple Prince' is another new interspecies hybrid between Iochroma australe 'Alba' and Iochroma cyaneum. It has dark purple buds which open to long grape purple flowers with a wide flare. Flowers are larger than either parent. It has the long tubular flowers of I. cyaneum with the flaring bell shape from I. australe. So far the blooming habit seems to be to put out long stems with a large cluster at the tip followed by smaller weeping side shoots with smaller numerous clusters. Although trainable, this variety is very prolific and strong growing so needs more space than it's siblings. More wide growing than tall, lush and full. Much more trainable than pure I. cyaneum, this type can be trained to be low and spreading or trained up to be a tall specimen. Although similar to Iochroma 'Royalty', 'Purple Prince' grows many times larger. Exclusive. (Thompson) Solanaceae

Iochroma Princess Iochroma 'Princess'
Code: 90302
Price: $10.95

Quantity in Basket: none

Iochroma 'Princess' is a new interspecies hybrid between Iochroma australe 'Alba' and Iochroma cyaneum. It has the flaring bell shape flowers and small growth habit from I. australe. 'Princess' has a lovely shade of medium pink flowers. They are short but open to very wide flaring bells. So far the blooming habit seems to be to put out long stems with a large cluster at the tip followed by a myriad of smaller weeping side shoots covered with smaller clusters that totally engulf the plant. Blooms all year but most heavily in summer as do most iochromas. Does not go dormant in winter. Much more trainable than pure I. cyaneum, this type can be trained to be low and spreading. Very rare color on a very versatile plant. Exclusive. (Thompson) Solanaceae

Iochroma Queen Iochroma 'Queen'
Code: 90303
Price: $10.95

Quantity in Basket: none

Iochroma 'Queen' is a new interspecies hybrid between Iochroma australe 'Alba' and Iochroma cyaneum. It has dark lavender pink buds which open to long lavender pink flowers that fade to pure pink. This is the closest an Iochroma has come to a true pink. Flowers are larger than either parent. It has the long tubular flowers of I. cyaneum with a slight flaring bell shape from I. australe. So far the blooming habit seems to be to put out long stems with a large cluster at the tip followed by smaller weeping side shoots with smaller numerous clusters. Flower color can be subjective in iochromas since they seem to change color with light intensity or duration. Much more trainable than pure I. cyaneum, this type can be trained to be low and spreading or trained up to be a tall specimen. Exclusive. (Thompson) Solanaceae

Nearly black buds open to wide flaring dark purple, nearly black flowers in good light. May fade to more grape coloring in low light areas. Flower color can be subjective in iochromas since they seem to change color with light intensity or duration. So far, the blooming habit seems to be to put out long stems with a large cluster at the tip followed by smaller weeping side shoots with numerous smaller clusters. Much more trainable than pure I. cyaneum, this type can be trained to be low and spreading or trained upright. It is a smaller grower compared to the other interspecies hybrids of its type. Exclusive. (Thompson) Solanaceae

Iochroma umbellata Iochroma umbellata
Code: 90121
Price: $13.95

Quantity in Basket: none

(Acnistus umbellatus, Dunalia umbellata, Lycium umbellatum). Rare Iochroma for the collector with greenish-yellow flowers mottled with purple and many-seeded bitter greenish-white fruit. Shrub or small tree growing from 7 to 16 feet high. Give rich soil with adequate moisture, part shade to full sun. Collected by Paul C. Hutchison, J. Wright, and R. Straw near Huamachuco, Peru at an elevation of 9,350 feet in 1964 for the U.C. Berkeley Botanical Garden. Has been found by others growing in Peru from 6,200 to 12,700 feet. Growing at these high elevations probably means some frost tolerance. Solanaceae
