If you love the spectacular bell flowers of the Abutilon but have been frustrated by the constant need to cut back the rampant growth, this collection is for you! The ‘Lucky Lantern’ series of Abutilons are genetic dwarfs, growing to approximately 70cm x 70cm, which form a compact rounded bushy shrub simply smothered in glorious lantern-like bells from Spring right through to late Autumn in New Zealand conditions. ‘Lucky Lantern White’ has large pure white flowers with vibrant yellow stamen produced in profusion. A true perennial shrub providing a wonderful display for containers, patio, courtyard or even hanging baskets
Abutilons are generally hardy, tolerating temperatures down to -12ºc once established. ‘Lucky Lanterns’ will prefer well drained soils in full sun, and are heat and drought tolerant once established. These free branching shrubs don’t require trimming but you may trim lightly if desired after flowering to encourage further re-blooming.
