Flowering Maple 'Lucky Lantern Yellow', Abutilon hybrida 'Lucky Lantern Yellow', Abutilon 'Nuabyell'


Noted for its long flowering season and compact size, Abutilon 'Lucky Lantern Yellow' (Flowering Maple) is a dwarf, bushy, rounded, semi-evergreen shrub bearing large, pendant, soft lemon-yellow, bell-shaped flowers. Blooming for weeks from summer to frost (and almost year-round in warm climates), they decorate the plant with a profusion of eye-catching, lantern-shaped blossoms which attract butterflies and hummingbirds. The pretty flowers stand out against the fresh green foliage of maple-like leaves that line the gracefully arching branches. A lovely addition to decorative containers or hanging baskets. Heat and drought tolerant once established.

  • Grows up to 12 in. tall and wide (30 cm).
  • A full sun to part shade lover, this plant is best grown in evenly moist, rich, well-drained soils. Provide a sheltered location if grown outdoors. Appreciates afternoon shade in hottest climates.
  • Perfect for beds and borders or containers.
  • Trim back when young and after blooming to encourage strong basal branching and re-blooming.
  • Native to Australia
