Abutilon will require plenty of room to grow so take care when choosing an appropriate sire. To create a vertical structure, you may wish to use a support in which to train your plant against walls, fences or other features.
As Abutilon as vigorous growers, prune back long stems as this will help maintain a compact and bushy shape. Once established, feed fortnightly with a balanced water-soluble fertiliser as this will produce an abundance of flowering. Water regularly during active growth but be careful not to waterlog. Water sparingly during winter.
It is possible to propagate Abutilon by seed in the spring or by softwood cuttings.
