This abutilon has been planted outside for the last three years here in zone 8. It is planted against an East facing wall, it dies to the ground and comes back early summer for me. Nothing seems to bother it and here it is almost the end of Nov. 09 and it is still full of blooms. Love this plant. Does not set seed but will propagated easily from cuttings.
