    Anyone know this plant? It was growing in a greenhouse in the UK. I guess it's Solanaceae, possibly even a Brugmansia?

    I believe the correct name is Iochroma cyaneum (J. Lindley). One of my favorites!
    Here's an old illustration of it from 1845 that I hope you like. Back then it was called Iochroma tubulosa.
