Iochroma 'Princess'




Iochroma Princess

$10.95  

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 'Purple Prince'




Iochroma Purple Prince

$10.95  

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 'Royalty'




Iochroma Royalty

$10.95  

Iochroma 'Royalty' is a new interspecies hybrid between Iochroma australe 'Alba' and Iochroma cyaneum. It has the wide flaring bell shape flowers from I. australe on a larger growing shrub that doesn't go dormant. 'Royalty' lives up to its name with royal purple flowers in profusion. 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
