PLEASE NOTE: Abutilon are absolutely beautiful, but notoriously temperamental plants. We do not recommend buying Abutilon unless you are experienced with the highs and lows of gardening and sanguine about the possibility of losing plants! We do not offer any guarantee beyond the first week after you receive them because we have no control over how they are treated.
