Abutilon 'Eric Lilac'

 

Flowering Maple 'Eric Lilac'

Abutilon 'Eric Lilac' is a hybrid seemingly with A. vitifolium, its parentage evident in its foliage and branching habit. Abutilons are fast-growing, soft-wooded plants native to sub-tropical regions. As they're on the tender side, many people choose to keep them in conservatories or light rooms as fabulous ornamental plants. They will also do fine against sunny sheltered walls outdoors.

Planting as a houseplant

From Early Spring TO Late Spring

If left unrestrained, Abutilon may grow to ten feet in height and spread, so it is important to not provide too large of a planter but it should have good drainage and filled with a quality general purpose houseplant compost. Site it in a well lit position with filtered sunlight and where the daytime temperature is about 70F during the day and about 60F at night.

 

Planting Outdoors Spring

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Plant outdors in spring only in regions where the night temperature does not fall below about 60F. Plant in a moist but will drained soil in a site that offers some proitection from strong winds and in dappled sunlight. Apply a generous layer of well rotted compost into the planting hole and water frequently until established.
