I love the Iochroma and it is now on the must have list for next year! Great containers!

The color of the lochroma is one that I like, too - it's fun to see your West Coast flowers DD. The containers you designed are stunning, making me realize that I need more plants in the sedum/succulent category!

The Iochroma is amazing! Is it tropical? Looks like something that won't grow in a cold, wet garden like mine.

I would put the Iochroma in the sub-tropical catagory.
It's from Central and South America and is in the same family as Brugmansia ( Angels Trumpet ) , the Solanaceae family.
It is a super fast grower like the Brugmansia too.
And regenerates itself from cuttings quickly.

I have two different varieties and 3 differert colors.
purple, orange and burgundy.

God damn, you have the coolest plants to take photos of...and your photos kick ass! I'm jealous here on the right coast. :(

The purple Iocrhoma cyaneum is used a lot in my 'hood. A guy a couple blocks away pruned it up into a two-story tree!

I love that you're calling the Aeonium rosette a bloom. I'm going to do that too.

I passed through your town yesterday on my way to a nursery in Fulton. It was so hot.

DD - I'm glad someone's showing off their foliage as much as their flowers for GBBD. All of them look like such gorgeous architectural plants.

If only the abutilons didn't get so leggy!

I love how you put together those containers. Thanks for participating in Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!
