Prominent cream-colored leaf edging makes this FAST and EASY “Flowering Maple” a lively stand-out in the garden. Tropicalesque in appearance, upright and branching, it’ll grow 6-8' tall in a jiffy, with its pretty salmon-pink “lantern” flowers dangling year-round in mild Winter climates. Fun towering over the garden (or fence), or you can easily prune for a shorter, bushier shape. To keep your Abutilons happy, always provide well-drained, compost-enhanced soil. Evergreen. Can die back in USDA zone 8 Winters, but returns from the roots. Hummingbird heaven!
