Dwarf cultivar of the popular maple-leaf shrub. With brilliant red downward-facing lantern-shaped blooms that cover the plant nearly year-round, it makes the perfect container or border accent choice. A tidy 12” x 12” bush with a rounded habit, it needs only one pinch on the center leader to encourage this shape. A fast grower, it loves full sun or partial shade and tolerates drought and heat well. Best in Sunset Garden zones 8, 9, and 12-24, it needs just regular watering. Be on the lookout for birds and butterflies attracted to its many blooms. Abutilon Lucky Lantern Red is an excellent accent plant that will provide enjoyment all year.
