Flowering Maple Bella Select Mix

3

Abutilon

A favorite ornamental houseplant since the 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 spot indoors, 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)    5 seeds

Tortoise dessert

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.

VERY NICE

These take a while to get going, but are well worth the wait. They are loaded with flowers, with buds coming all the time. All 5 seeds germinated. We brought them inside for the winter (it is now mid December) pinched them back a little and they are still going strong. Love these plants!
