These beautiful, deep purple, tubular flowers are continually produced as the tree grows. Iochroma is a vigorous, soft wooded, tender tree. The branches snap very easily and care is needed when transporting it. I grow this one, which is now 10 feet(3mtrs) high. Its roots are fine and rampant thereby filling the pot very quickly. It needs plenty of water all year round. I take it inside in the cool conservatory about December just before the heavy frost arrives.
