Seems more prone to aphids than other abutilons. I have a trailing flowering maple abutilon planted on the left and a 'red tiger' on the right (all have plenty of space/room) and 'challo' is the only one I have problems with. However, nature seems to sort of keep it under control, as I have marigolds underneath all three, which seem to keep 'challo' aphid population from getting to the flying status.. But then the slugs also like to eat 'challo'.. Not the other guys as well!

Pretty flowers and nice shape/growth. Looking on the bright side of things.. This plant does support biodiversity of insect life!
