|Abutilon x hybridum|
Flowering Maple, Weeping Maple,Chinese Lantern
Origin: South America
Abutilon x hybridum is a collective name for several varieties. Upright, arching growth with maple-like foliage. Drooping, lantern-like blooms in white, yellow, pink or red in spring. Forms a natural trellis-like shape without training. This is a great container plant. Prune in early spring, and pinch tips to keep bushy.
5384 Abutilon darwinii x striatum - Fireball (yellow-red veined flower)Also known as A. x hybridum Fireball, and Abutilon Biltmore Ballgown, this is one of the many lovely hybrids between A. darwinii and A.
striatum, with maple-like leaves and bell-flowers whose petals are recurved, turning in slightly at the bottom.
Flowers are fiery red, as one would imagine, with prominent red veins accenting the surface. Happy plants can
reach 8-10 ft tall, though pruning easily adjusts the size. Best with plentiful summer water and fertilizer. Less
hardy than many, preferring temperatures that only occasionally drop into the 20sF, USDA zone 9. Placement out
of wind with overhead protection and plentiful mulch help in less than balmy climates.
