Can anyone identify this plant

My son saw this on a walk in Hereford, UK, and asked me what it was - but I have never seen one before.




It is an abutilon, can't recall full name. Someone clever will tell you!

I pretty sure its abutilon megapotamicum - but I'm not that clever ,it's taken me ages to recall Abutilon - once I'd got that, then I remembered the rest... !

Thank you both for helping - I've never heard of it either! I shall now look it up to see if there's a common name.

I had absolute faith that someone here would know, and you haven't let me down.
