A neighbor told me that this was a hummingbird bush. I am coming up with Abutilon, Flowering Maple 'Fruit Punch' (Abutilon) from: http://davesgarden.com/guides/.... What do you think? Thank you for your help!

Rather than sending folks to the old DG, why not direct them to the NGA database here:
Flowering Maple (Abutilon 'Fruit Punch')

If you are sure of the ID for the plant, you could add some photos to the database and earn acorns. I tip my hat to you.

There are so many varieties of abutilon and new ones coming out every year that it's not easy to pin it down to an exact ID with just photos.
It's definitely not Fruit Punch

Here's a nice long list of various cultivars, although it's not up to date.

Additional images. Would like to narrow down the possible cultivar.
