Abutilon Nabob a recipient of the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit is an upright, evergreen shrubby plant that requires a sheltered spot within the garden or a conservatory where it will grow and flower for most of the year. The dark green three lobed, maple like leaves provide an attractive backdrop to the pendant, deep-crimson bowl-shaped flowers with conspicuous stamens resembling hanging lanterns. Suitable for container growing, and can be easily pruned in the Spring to keep compact, equally happy growing within a sheltered sunny border.
