General Description

The Bella hybrids are unusually compact, mounding tender shrubs that are most commonly grown as bedding plants. Tropical in origin, they are evergreen and ever-blooming in frost-free zones and have large maple-like green leaves.

Rather than the traditional downward facing Abutilon flowers, those in the Bella Series face outward giving them a showier, more exotic look. The hibiscus-like flowers come in a wide range of colors including apricot, red, peach, rose, white and yellow.

These Abutilon grow best in sites with partial sun and rich, well-drained soil with even moisture. Use as a container plant on a shaded deck or patio or grow them indoors all year round.
