ABUTILON pictum ‘Thompsonii’ Variegated Flowering Maple
ABUTILON pictum ‘Thompsonii’
Fast growing, evergreen shrub or small tree. Leaves are 5- to 9- lobed and somewhat variegated with yellow splotches.
Light orange flowers; large, maple-shaped leaves speckled with yellow.
This plant was a favorite of Victorians, growing well in bright conservatories and relocated outside in containers during warmer months
Great patio plants; fine indoors with good light.
Plant in sun to partial sun area. Height seems to vary online , but one figure I’ve found is 6′ I would imagine with some age, mine have never gotten that big , however I only grew them seasonal..
Hardy in zones 8-10 , grow inside in other zone areas.
May be grown outside year round in frost-free areas or against warm wall or protected space in marginal areas. Use in shrub border, container garden.
