Favorite or New Plant
Abutilons, commonly called flowering maples, are leggy annuals or slightly tender perennials, depending upon our fickle winter weather. They have an awkward shape but large, soft, maple tree shaped leaves and very attractive bell-shaped flowers. Abutilons are perfect for containers, where their delicate flowers can become showy focal points. Try pairing abutilons with little ornamental grasses or foliage plants like heucheras that will grow to fill out around their stems.
