Candy Corn Abutilon


Abutilon megapotanicum

Red and yellow lantern-like flowers bob and dance on the elegant, arching stems of this unusual Abutilon throughout the summer & fall. Left alone, it eventually grows into a 3’x3’ sprawling mound of color, but it’s spectacular trained in a 3’-4’ “tree” form where the flowers can really show off! It can also be trained as a short climber, makes beautiful hanging baskets, works well in a pot or trained on supports in the garden. Responds well to pruning for a lush, fuller look. Full sun or light shade. Prefers a moist, well-drained soil.
