Description

A choice exotic plant with extraordinary looks! Abutilon megapotamicum bears red and yellow lantern-shaped flowers which dangle prettily from long stalks. Each lantern unfolds like an origami parcel, revealing protruding anthers which resemble the clanger of a bell. The dainty flowers are complemented by elegant, heart-shaped, semi-evergreen leaves which clothe a framework of fine branches. The flowering season is impressively long, with blooms produced continuously from spring until autumn.

Despite its exotic looks, Abutilon megapotamicum is one of the hardiest of species Abutilons. It can be grown outdoors in coastal and mild southern parts of the UK, where it will survive down to about -10C. It is ideally grown on a warm and sheltered South-facing wall where its fine branches can be trained as an espalier. Alternatively, grow it in a patio container and bring it into the greenhouse or conservatory for the winter.

Height: 2m (79in). Spread: 1.5m (60in).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow

More Info
Feed and water regularly throughout the spring and summer. Abutilon plants do not tolerate overly dry soil and may drop their foliage under such conditions. Prune abutilon lightly in spring, removing any damaged or dead stems.
