It is hard to resist the small, globular flowers that hang like small Tiffany lampshades at the ends of flowering stems. Their golden orange glow is netted with red veining and a long pistil extends far beyond the tip of the almost-closed flower like a pull-cord. The three-lobed foliage is reminiscent of a maple leaf as the common name reminds us. Abutilon 'Marion Stewart' is said to be hardy to 10 degrees Fahrenheit but we treat this as if it were tender and bring it in for the winter.
