I wonder Cala if this is like the one I just sent you that I labeled grand purple. I looked it up awhile back and I thought it had a grand in the name. Is yours a true blue or really a purple.? Mine is. It is a bigger flower than the other 2 I sent you. I found a pic of mine.

ok ok..mine looks blue also here but I swear it is purple..........but I may be remembering wrong a sI am blonde! I found the name, Iochroma grandiflora. What do you think?

I'm not sure Kell, my acnistus looks so different from the Iochroma. It's more flared, like a mini angel's trumpet. It is baby blue.

I would love even a seed to try from this plant. I have looked everywhere to no avail. I am in Canada. [email protected]
