Has anyone in the Phoenix area grown Abutilon 'Tiger Eye'? I wondered if it does well here.

Hi Nancy.. Big Grin

I have grown Abutilon as a potted patio plant in the past. It did fairly well in Tucson but I did eventually lose it. Not sure what happened and I do not know what variety it was. I would not put it in the full sun. I love the plant and should really try again. Good luck on yours ! Thumbs up

Thanks for your response. I grew the plain yellow Abutilon when I lived in RI. It needs more humidity than I can provide here in Phoenix. Probably 'Tiger Eye' is the same. Thanks for your help.
