ABUTILON LEILA JACKSON

ABUTILON LEILA JACKSON

from 5.00

Abutilon Leila Jackson is a particularly fine recent introduction, named after the owner of T3 Wall End Nursery (an outfit well known for their cultivation of these lovely shrubs), and boasting sizeable rather open bell shaped flowers best described as orangey yellow with deep red markings in the centres and a brown calyx. The leaves are typically jagged and maple-like in appearance. You can expect a profusion of said flowers from spring to autumn - and through the winter if kept in a warm bright location, such as a conservatory. A good specimen plant in a large pot which allows you to move it around in the different seasons, perhaps outdoors in summer and indoors in the colder months. Hardy to around -5C. Sun or semi-shade. Any reasonable soil. To 6 feet. 2 litre pot.

Although growing into a strapping shrub if left to her own devices, it is relatively easy to keep Abutilon Leila Jackson more compact and manageable by a bit of strategic pruning throughout the growing season. A pretty hard pruning in early spring is usually a good idea with abutilons, with more of the same in the autumn, before placing in a sheltered spot outdoors, eg in a corner or up against a wall, or bringing indoors or into a shed or greenhouse to protect against the worst of the winter weather conditions.

Abutilon Leila Jackson is a half hardy shrub with orangey yellow bell shaped flowers with red centres in summer and autumn suitable for sun or semi-shade.
