I have this abutilon growing in a hanging basket in part sun....no afternoon sun. Non-stop blooms! Hummers love it. I tried to research size...only to be confused. I'm going with where I purchased it from and the information was that it will grow 2 - 3 feet and will do great in hanging baskets. It definitely needs regular watering...sometimes a little more in hoter climates.

An evergreen or semi-evergreen hybrid shrub.

Has dark green, ovate, lobed leaves borne on slender stems. Bears pale yellow/apricot, pendant flowers held in a red calyx.

Flowers June-September

Loves a well-drained, fertile soil in a sunny spot. It's a little bit tender and will only cope with short periods of mild frosts. It can be easily grown indoors in a large pot.

It's best propagated by cuttings as the seed won't come true.
