Flowering Maple Bella Select Mix

A favorite ornamental houseplant since Victorian times and as a container plant, it flowers all year long. Abutilon can be transplanted into the ground as an annual, be grown in pots just for one season or bought inside, providing lovely flowers during the winter. Overwintered in a sunny spotindoors, it will bloom continuously with 2-inch bell-shaped flowers that have a papery, delicate appearance, and nod downward in between the deep green maple shaped leaves. Flowers come in shades of apricot to apricot orange, cream, and vanilla. The plants are well branching and this variety is more compact, growing 16-20"  but will keep growing into 2 -3 foot plus plants when placed in large containers. F1 hybrid

Poor Germination Results for Abutilon 'Bella Mix'

Shopping experience was fine, but germination was poor. I had only one viable seedling. I'm an experienced plant propagator so was disappointed.

Gorgeous!

The very first plant I grew from Pinetree, back in the day. A gorgeous plant, with both beautiful maple-like leaves and stunning hibiscus-like blossoms! I grew mine in a 14-inch pot and it filled it out nicely. I will definitely grow again!

I grow these under one of those flat aerogarden panel lights. They flower well, any my four tortoises and my box turtles really enjoy them. Being able to grow a brightly colored mallow flower in the winter now and then really cheers them up, tho it may not be obvious.
