How to Grow
Seedlings emerge in 14-28 days. Shift to larger pots when seedlings are large enough to handle. Grow in large pots indoors or transplant to garden or containers outdoors after danger of frost. Start indoors about 8 weeks before outdoor planting time. Set plants at least 18" apart in the garden after all danger of frost.
Abutilon attracts hummingbirds and makes a nice touch in beds, hedges, mixed borders, and containers like urns or tubs, indoors and out. You can also train abutilon as espaliers.
