Description: From a distance, this abutilon resembles a giant velvet-leafed nasturtium. Growing in mostly shade, it never produced seed, but after nearby trees were removed, it began to reseed prolifically. So give it plenty of room. It comes true to seed even while other abutilons are blooming nearby.
