Tell Me More...
The long wiry stems of Abutilon are perfect for training up a wall or trellis, but are equally as happy grown as a feature plant. Originating from Southern America and more commonly known as the Chinese Lantern, or the Flowering Maple, Abutilon were a favourite of the Victorians, grown for their long flowering season from May to November. The long wiry stems are perfect for training up a wall or trellis and drip all summer and all autumn with buttery-yellow and blood-red, lantern-like blooms, that hang, like bells, with dark clappers. Tending to keep the foliage all year round, the flowers can apparently be used in salads, cooked or raw though we have never tried it. Withstanding temperatures to around -5 C, Abutilon would appreciate a sheltered sunny spot, or against a south facing wall. They make wonderful conservatory plants during the winter and will probably continue to flower. Preferring to be grown in well-drained soil in sun Abutilon will cope with partial shade and reach a height and spread of approximately 2m.
