The Tricolor Abutilon is best as a tub plant. Choose a large pot or planter with holes in the base. Cover the bottom with a layer of potsherds or gravel. Put potting compost in the pot and plant the root ball at the correct depth. Fill the pot with compost, press firmly and water immediately after planting.

Tricolor Abutilon makes a great houseplant

The abutilon makes an excellent indoor plant. Place this evergreen plant in a bright spot, but protect it from direct, bright sunlight. In winter, place the abutilon in a cool room (10-15˚ C) and water less frequently. In March, in preparation for the warmer weather, cut back the main stem by half and the laterals to 8-10 cm. Water freely during the growing season and feed at 10-14 days interval with a liquid fertiliser.


Deadheading regularly is essential if you want to encourage a second flowering. For an extra rich flowering during the summer, feed with plant food when watering on a regular basis.

Abutilon overwintered

Abutilon is not hardy but can be moved indoors over the winter period. Once you bring them indoors place them in a cool, bright room (10-15° C). Give them a little water. In March, when the weather is warmer, you can water more often. Cut back all stems by about half. In May once there is no danger of frost the plant can be taken outside again.
It can also be kept cooler (4-10 ° C) but the plant loses its leaves. In the spring, the plant will then produce new leaves. The plant may overwinter in the dark.


The abutilon comes in beautiful colours. We suggest that you plant the three different colours in one pot, the stems of these different varieties will grow together. As a result, it appears as three different colours on one plant. This plant will look amazing on your patio or decking!
