If you could only grow one which one would you chose from this selection?

I had one years ago that put on a wonderful show and a couple since that I wasn't that impressed with.

Are the more colorful ones floriferous? I'm thinking it might have been the Australis that I liked but...

Thank you for your suggestions from a Canadian that is so tired of our current Arctic landscape.

Iochroma australe (syn. I. australis) is probably the easiest to take care of, shows an impressive flower display, and is pretty sturdy in your area. Indoors, with good light, it will flower all year.

Thank you Metrosideros :o) I've ordered what you suggested.

Now if the snow in my yard ever melts I will have a lovely garden.
