Abutilon 'Marianne'

Abutilon 'Marianne' | Flowering Maple, Chinese Lantern

The genus Abutilon has about 200 species: mostly in tropics and subtropics. The most common Flowering Maples (hybrids known as Abutilon hybridum) are derived from crosses between several South American species. 'Marianne' is an improved, more diminutive megapotanicum type with bicolored yellow and red flowers.
