Positive Kell On Jul 1, 2010, Kell from Northern California, CA (Zone 9b) wrote:

Abutilons are very easy to grow both inside and outside. They will bloom repeatedly all year in my moderate zone 9B with the heaviest flushes being in the early summer. Many of these will withstand some frost. Hummingbirds adore this plant.

Here they will grow into a small tree if pruned to do so or a very large bush.
