A recent introduction, Abutilon Waltz – like its cousin Tango – will look good on a wall or in a patio pot. Give it that, and you are in for a constant succession of dangling open bowl-shaped lemon yellow flowers. Fabulous. Hardy to around -5C or perhaps a little more. Sun or semi-shade. Any reasonable soil. To 6 feet. 2 litre pot.
Waltz is a relatively new variety of abutilon, which has quickly become popular due to its upright and tidy habit, good winter hardiness and let’s be honest, those big dangling open bells of clearest lemon yellow offset by the jagged fresh green foliage. As refreshing as a long cool drink on a summer’s day.
While Waltz will look good against a fence or wall, it is equally adaptable to a free standing situation in the garden or as a pot specimen. We favour the latter ourselves, as it allows the plant to be moved as necessary, eg to a sheltered corner in winter.
Light pruning as you wish in summer, a hard prune in the spring and a bit of a cut back in the autumn should be all that’s required on the maintenance front.
Abutilon Waltz is a half hardy evergreen shrub with pendant clear lemon yellow bell shaped flowers in summer and autumn suitable for sun or semi-shade.
