This abutilon has smaller flowers and leaves than most. They are a nice orange.

It will grow in full sun along the coast but is better in part shade inland.

It can be grown in ground or in a container indoors or outdoors. If grown in a container, the larger the pot, the bigger the plant will grow. If kept indoors, size can be restricted to compact size by keeping it in a small pot.
