The Q&A Archives: Abutilon

Question: I have just purchased a beautiful flowering plant called Abutilon Bella and I would like to know if this plant flowers all year and where best to plant it. I've gotten conflicting information on all that I've found, which was very little regarding this. Thanks.

Answer: Your plant is commonly called Flowering Maple and will bloom all summer if given full sunshine and moderate water during the growing season. Abutilon grows vigorously and should be pruned back in the spring to encourage new flowering shoots. Your plant will eventually develop arching growth to about 10 in height.
