Abutilon megapotanicum - 2018

Abutilon megapotanicum - 2018 (Abutilon megapotamicum)

Lax shrub to eight feet, best grown against a wall or trellis in full sun and given support. In mild winters, it won't stop flowering; in harder ones it will be killed back to ground level, but will reshoot from the roots once established.

Yes, my variegated one was hit hard last winter, but is flowering now.

Before being dug out I had mine with a oblisk it use to cascade over the rings going up the oblisk.

DD - mine has performed badly over the past few years (it's an old plant) so I bought a replacement and guess what - the original has got its second wind!

Is the pic of the original or the replacement? It does look covered in flowers.

That's the original - the replacement was planted next to it but is not so tall yet.
