A perfect choice for winter landscapes, it offers year-round color and blooms in the spring and summer.

Outdoors, grow the shrubs inĀ full sun to partial shade. Northern gardeners may wish to grow theseĀ sub-tropicalĀ specimensĀ in containers so that it is easier to bring them indoors in the fall, where they will be grown as houseplants during the winter. Grow them in a well-drained soil that has been enriched withĀ compost. Abutilon plants have average water needs. In zones 9-10, optimal lighting is for the plants to receive full sun in the morning but some shade in the hot afternoon. Rather than performing outright pruning, the recommended way to keep the plants compact is toĀ pinch the tips of the branches of the bushes while they are young.
