Abutilon  (Abutilon megapotamicum variegata)

The variegated foliage has been a little frosted during the cold snap April 28th, although the flowers which were developing Feruary 16 th are now almost fully open.

Wow, isn't it early and impressive to have flowers now? I thought flowers appeared only in mid-summer.

Thanks for the nice nickname!
I'm also "T-without-Mobile" (I've got no mobile phones!). LOL!!

Sorry Tm, thought I had predictive text turned off, but kept spell check on, cause my spelling is awful. Actually it boils down to my impatience!

LOL, I thought you'd done it on purpose!

Actually You are very mobile, travelling wide and far, so quite a good nickname.

I do believe after over 20 years ours has gone to the great plant heaven in the sky!! it never stood a chance with all the alterations, I might invest in another sometime...

Yes, I thought you'd given me the nick-name because I was "mobile", but the truth is, it was done by "predictive text"! So funny and what a coincidence! The other day, a friend called me "tomorrow" on Facebook. That wasn't very funny but I thought "she must be very busy". LOL

Dd, got mine last year at Macpennys. It has almost doubled in size. I, too had one 20 years ago but lost it, so this is its replacement. My lovely pink and white edged leaves of Actonidia kolomikta have also been frosted.

Our leaves are fine, but nibbled!!

Wonder what has been eating your Actinidia, Dd.
