Abutilon Patio Lantern™ Passion displays hanging, bell-shaped, watermelon-pink flowers on a compact, profusely flowering, deciduous shrub with maple-like leaves. The abundant blooms attract hummingbirds and butterflies.
Abutilons are very heat tolerant, making them excellent for summer gardens or containers in the hot sun. Provide winter protection in cooler climates. They thrive in well-drained soil with occasional feedings. Pinch the young leaf stems to encourage more branching. Prune lightly to shape and remove dead stems.
