Plant Guardians

Abutilon ‘Snowfall’

Our earliest dates for this cultivar are a record from Logee's nursery (Connecticut, US) 1996. Founded by William Logee as a cut flower business in 1892, the business quickly developed into growing unusual and tropical plants. Abutilon grow well in rich, moist but well-drained soil, and prefer dappled shade and well-lit situations. Full sun can cause scorching on variegated forms. Hardier varieties can survive outside in milder regions when grown in a sheltered position.
