Meanie:

Great purchase!

This plant grows very quickly...I had many when I lived in the San Francisco Bay Area and they grew quickly (within less than one year) to 8 feet / 2.5 meters tall. They also flower all year. : > )

Meanie:

This plant will tolerate quite a bit of frost to at least 23 degrees F/ -5 degrees C. When I lived in the San Francisco Bay Area I would see many varieties of Abutilon growing in the frost pocket areas inland and thriving.

I had many varieties myself when I lived in the San Francisco Bay Area...but the city where I lived rarely had more than 2 or 3 days of light frost each winter with temps rarely below 35 degrees F/ 2 degrees C.

Not worth the risk I think as it's still a young plant! Maybe next winter with a fleece.

Meanie:

If you plant one into the ground (next spring), you'll see how quickly it will grow. They are super easy from cuttings (I received all my plants from cuttings from friends). I literally just stuck the cuttings into the ground and watered. The cuttings quickly grew to 8 feet/ 2.5 meters.

Here in San Diego they seem to take longer to grow large like in the San Francisco Bay Area. I think it's because of the horrible soil here. My plant in the front yard is 5 years old and only 5 feet/ 1.5 meters tall.

Beautiful...

Delonix - I'll try some cuttings next year. Thanks for the tip!

Faerieflora - it certainly is!
