Abutilon pictum 'Thompsonii'

Variegated Flowering Maple

Commonly known as the Flowering Maple, these tropical and semi-tropical shrubs or plants are prized for their rapid growth and plentiful, long-lasting blossoms. Some species have maple-like leaves and shape. In cooler climates, they are grown in greenhouses or in pots and hanging baskets and taken indoors during the winter. In warmer climates, they are grown as an espalier. Protect from afternoon sun in warm climates. Easily started from greenwood cuttings in autumn. Stake young plants. Water often during growing/blooming season and less frequently at other times. Pinch growing tips and prune in early spring to promote bushy growth.
