Yep Xeo, can you actually believe this? The abutilons are really putting on some spectacular show for me. Now they are competing with my loropetalum and I can't decide which is prettier I have a serious thing for those abutilons, someone call the abutilon anonymous people please. They really are my latest obsession.

Xeolyte. Man, I sure would love to get my hands on that Brazilian shrimp plant. Are these plants you just have to have in your collection?

Yep .. the Dianthera is a newby I traded for last Fall that survived many thug vines trying to attack it and held it's own this winter. I'm beefing it up now and will start feeding as soon as the soil temperature gets above 65 degrees. You're definitely on the list for a cutting when it's old enough for its first hair cut.

I'm glad to read Dianthera nodesa is pretty tough! A cutting sounds great Xeo.

too funny bali. A newbie is something/someone new to whatever your subject is;i.e., a new member to PlantSwap, a new plant in your collection etc. etc.

Update.
All blooms on my 'Bella Reds' are the salmon color. on two separate stems, so it looks like abutilon flowerdazed.



'Marilyn's Choice' is providing a very nice show.

What beautiful flowers. I love abutilon. I have had little luck growing them from seeds. I hope to be able to find a few in garden centers for sale this year so we can add some new ones.

The next step for Abutilon Flowerdazed is root some of the stems and see if the new color continues to hold.

I'm thinking you have a winner there!
