Flowering Maple

Abutilon sp.

Flowering Maple

Flowering maple is a slender, weeping shrub that provides great foliage color and interest. The maple-like leaves are often variegated with yellow or white. Plants grow to 1-3 feet tall. It will sometimes provide late fall color as it is tolerant of very light frosts. Flowering maple prefers full sun and a soil that stays evenly moist. Flowering maple is a tender plant that can be overwintered as a houseplant if given very high light.
