Plant Details

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.

Supplied as a young plant in a 9x10cm pot.


A soft-wood shrub from Chile with vine-like leaves. Vigorous and fast-growing, to 5-6m. Copious numbers of large, mauve flowers with prominent bosses of orange stamens, throughout the summer.

A hardy, unusual and vigorous shrub with somewhat downy, vine-shaped leaves and bearing with some abundance exotic-looking, saucer-shaped flowers in an attractive shade of mauve. 

Benefits from some shelter against cold winds, so against a warm wall or fence is ideal.

Height: 6m

Common name(s): Gorer's mallow, Indian mallow

All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
