Lovely Red Tiger Abutilon
Oh, isn't the Abutilon Red Tiger blossom lovely...
We purchased this plant as a seedling from Spiral Gardens http://www.spiralgardens.org/
early Summer of this year. It was about 4 inches high, with a little blossom.
I planted it in a bright shade spot in one of our patio plant beds and it seems to thrive there.
The plant is now 15 inches tall and currently has three blossoms on it, one in full bloom.
I give it compost at least once a month, including egg shells, banana peels and used tea bags.
This keeps the soil fertile, rich and loose.
