Although blooming in winter right now, i expect them to bloom till spring and then in the late fall as well. I doubt that they will flower in intense heat of mid summer. They need to be prevented from monsoon rains as they dislike heavy rains. Good drainage is essential for them. In monsoon season, one must protect them from water logging. Humidity is another important factor as well. Some experts recommend lying the pots sideways to prevent from heavy monsoon rains.
Abutilon make excellent shrubs. They get tall as much as wide around 4-6 feet. Pruning is required on older plants to get in shape. This is my first year with these plants, i hope they stay long with me.
