Fabulous Flowering Maples

If you are looking for someting a bit different this is one plant not to be missed. These beautiful temperennials (plants that would be perennial in a warmer climate than our cold Northeast Zone 5)  flower continuously in light conditions from full sun to a half day of shade.  Give a weekly liquid feeding or a slow release fertilizer following the manufacturer’s instructions, water as you would your regular annuals and they will reward you with beautiful flowers all season long.

They even come with variegated foliage like the beautiful Variegated Salmon (Abutilon pictum Thomsonii).  These plants can be trained to a standard (tree) shape given time and pruning. We’ll have abutilon standards and assorted sizes of these great plants available in the spring.  With a little care they can be brought indoors and wintered over in a sunny window.

    I have several of these. I love them. If I were to bring them in for the winter could they probably grow into a bush or tree? Are tree forms more resistant to cold winters in southern Ontario? Could they be left in the garden as trees?
    Thanks very much.
