Plant Guardians

Abutilon ‘Orange Vein’ (v)

Described in the RHS Abutilon trial of 1999 as being a very vigorous cultivar similar to A. pictum, displaying few very nicely marked flowers. Although considered best for conservatory growing it was also described as 'too tall for pot culture.' Leaves are quite large and five palmate in form. Earliest known record is 1995 from Cutting Edge Nursery in Yorkshire.
