Excellent banner Cal!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Hey Everybodddie!

Saw-reeee.....forgot my mask! Sticking tongue out

Thanks for all the nice comments, acorns, & thumbs! Smiling

Abutilons are so easy....this one is in a large pot outside our kitchen and
just gets morning sun. I just have to trim it every so often if it gets lanky.
And I always save some cuttings as they root well in water. (I cut the growing tip
off, cut the leaves in half, and leave 2 nodes in the water).

Here are some pics of the plant.....be safe, have a great day. Thumbs up

Beautiful pics Cal. Thank you for posting them. I'm guessing it's a No Id Abutilon, since you didn't mention the variety.

Thanks, Marilyn.
No, I don't know what the name was. It's been in that pot at least 10 yrs, and don't even
remember where I bought it.

We also had another plant that looked like an abutilon, but was told it
was a different genus.....the flowers were pink, and not pendulous.
Very thin stems, but did well inside in a pot in the window with less sun
than the orange abutilon.

I think mealybugs got it while my back was turned. Crying
