Plant of the week: Abutilon ‘Kentish Belle’
Abutilons are a large genus of flowering plants, therefore their characteristics can vastly vary from variety to variety
Kentish Belle is a particularly popular variety because of its yellow, orange and red bell shaped flowers, which appear throughout summer.
As well as it’s colourful blooms, this bushy shrub is semi-evergreen with attractive triangular foliage.
Quick fact: If kept in a warm greenhouse or conservatory this Abutilon may continue to flower throughout the winter.
Hardier than most other Abutilons, this variety prefers a sunny yet well sheltered spot. Growing to a maximum of 2.5m x 2.5m it is perfect for coverage in your garden and can be easily pruned back to suit your needs!
