Thanks Sue. This is the most interesting of the abutilon flowers to me. Though the plant itself is a bit ugly I think. It is a tall upright one with big leaves disproportionate to the small flowers. Would be more interesting if trained into a standard.

That's cool, like how the bud just about to open. I have a clipping that was obtained at a round up, it is doing well and almost ready to go into the ground, look forward to the blooms.
