Abutilon hybrida = ‘Nuabred’

Abutilon hybrida LUCKY LANTERN™ is a collection of genetically dwarfed compact, rounded bushy abutilons which are excellent for summer containers both patio and hanging. They are all compatible in habit with large flower size. The breeding line is perennial with a longer growing period than the Bella seed-raised series, but still has a short growing cycle (4-6 months) compared with other perennials. The advantage of a vegetatively propagated Abutilon is the long blooming period summer-fall (near year-round in California conditions) with a profusion of bells at all the times.
