This plant (the one with the purple flowers)is growing like crazy, but I don't know what it is or what it likes.

THANK YOU!!!

It does look like a variety of Iochroma

There are probably many with the light purple or blue blooms; one for comparison: Mini Angel's Trumpet (Eriolarynx australis)

I don't think it's Iochroma australe, based on my experience with the plant. Likely a more tender species/cultivar.

Thanks for all the replies! My plant has fuzzy leaves & it looks like most varieties of iochroma do not. Does anyone know if some variety has fuzzy leaves?

Thumbs up I believe most Iochroma have soft, pubescent (fuzzy) leaves.
