Iochroma cyaneum "Royal Blue"
I grew this in a clay pot on a covered porch because I was afraid it would freeze here in zone 9. It bloomed all summer and is definitely a hummingbird magnet! I'm going to try planting one in the ground and mulching it next season. It is a beautiful shade of bluish-purple!
