My Abutilon

were grown from tiny cuttings. They struggled to survive the summer, even though they were watered well. While in my very damp glasshouse they thrived, but they didn’t like being moved out. They’re starting to look a little happier now. And so they should.. mid winter.

For mum

Today would be my mum’s birthday. She loved flowers.

Here is a single flower from a Chinese lantern or Chinese Bell Flower (Abutilon). I have a small shrub I purchased. This flower is the first from a cutting that I grew. She’d like that. Thanks mum
