Thanks! I've been very dissatisfied with this's only 6ft/2m tall in 6 years. When I lived in the San Francisco Bay Area, I used to get my Abutilon cuttings to 6ft/2m in 3 or 5 months.

Yes, the soil, cooler night temps and more rain was better for Abutilon.

Would this with stand frosts and is it a climber like the one I have

Do you have an Abutilon? Most Abutilons hybrids will tolerate temps down to 28ºF/-2ºC with little damage.

This hybrid Abutilon is a shrub, although, some are viny shrubs.

Yes I do have one Andy and was thinking of getting another with a peach flower different flower to the one I have though, the one I have got at present is small flowering red, yellow and black .

You must have the hardy ones. Most of the species which are grown here are native to the Brazilian rainforest. They're mostly Abutilon pictum the one posted above.
