Iochroma grandiflora

By Meanie


Iochroma grandiflora (Iochroma grandiflora)

Another new purchase from my trip down to Cornwall.
Bought at Hill House nurseries in Landscove (Devon) - a real treasure of a nursery!
Stands about half a metre high, and cost but a fiver!

It is rather - I've been thinking about this for a long time, as it is tender, but that price swung it for me!

Thanks Sticki and PA!
Plantaholic - I was thinking of cutting this back in early autumn and putting it in a coldframe. Will that work? It does appear to have two viable seed pods developing......

Kept mine in a cold glasshouse for 2 winters but this december was too cold, I prefer to cut mine back in spring but obviously with a cold frame thats difficult.
