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.
