Abutilon thompsonii

Genus: Abutilon.

Species: Abutilon thompsonii.

A variegated, orange flowered shrub preferring a sheltered position with part to full sun. I've always thought abutilon to be relatively tolerant and trouble free and so far this has been proving to be so. It did not like standing alone but once placed near a post with a stone giving a solid hold, it flowered well with just 6 broken hours of direct sunlight. I'm moving it into the house to test how it overwinters here. I'm hoping to get two nice standards grown for the house. :-)
