Iochroma ‘Royal Queen’

Iochroma ‘Royal Queen’ was purchased at the garden show in February. It is not completely hardy in our area, so it was planted in a pot that can be moved around if especially cold weather is expected. Sometime in perhaps March the iochroma became quite windblown and lost all of its blossoms and some of its leaves. Since then it has improved quite nicely. The plant was marked as “hummingbird candy,” but I am not sure if the hummingbirds use it.
