Description

Somewhere between a pomegranate and a blood orange, I adored this abutilon in the garden last summer. If you bring it in for the winter, it grows and flowers for years to come, forming great bushes of hanging ballgown flowers.

Care Tips

Hardy to around -5C, this abutilon is classed as tender but given winter protection and suitable soil will survive outdoors in milder areas. If unsure, try growing them in a container and bring into a conservatory over the winter.
