Plant Guardians

Abutilon ‘Moccas’


Bred & introduced 2006 by Leila Jackson of t3 Plants, Wall End Nursery, Herefordshire. Possibly named for the Herefordshire village of Moccas. Grows 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. If at risk of frost bring indoors over winter.
