Product Information



A recently introduced, very fast-growing cultivar of Flowering Maple with mid green lobed leaves sometimes up to 20cm long

Very floriferous, it carries nodding, bell or lantern shaped burnt orange flowers on its long arching stems from May to November sometimes even later if it’s mild.

Like all Abutilon Tango needs a well sheltered position, a warm south or west facing wall is very suitable but a courtyard, patio or conservatory is even better.

Does best in full sun but will tolerate a little shade.

Very successful when grown in pots and containers.

Any reasonable fertile well-drained garden soil is suitable but a good supply of water during the growing season is essential.

Not a recognised climber but can be trained to grow on a trellis or against a wall.

It is advised that Abutilon Tango should only be allowed to remain outside in very mild regions of the U.K. and even then it will still need some winter protection.

 In all other regions of the U.K. it is best grown in pots or containers and moved to a frost free place for the winter months.

Abutilons respond well to pruning, in fact hard, ruthless pruning is highly recommended and in spring the side shoots can be cut back to 1/3 their length to restrict growth or improve the shape of the plant.

A gorgeous, semi-evergreen ornamental shrub with a height rarely exceeding 6ft.

All pictures used are of mature plants in full bloom and may not necessarily reflect plants at all times of the year.

A truly stunning new variety.

Our plants are supplied ex. 8cm pots, they can be planted out immediately but better results will be obtained if they are grown on for a short time in a slightly larger container before transplanting to their final growing positions




We ask all our buyers to remember plants are living items and their appearance changes with the seasons.  Please don’t panic if the plant you receive looks different to the image on the website. This is quite normal and not a matter for any worry or concern, it is likely to be in perfect condition for the time of year and just enjoying a well-earned rest before bursting into action for the new season. Particularly in autumn and winter many shrubs will lose their leaves and look rather bare, gaunt and stick-like and from August onwards many perennial plants may not even be showing above the soil.

We want you to be happy with your purchase and all our items are checked and inspected visually before packing. In the unlikely event of a problem please advise us within 48hrs of delivery. Due to the nature of the goods we cannot accept any responsibility for their failure after planting as pests, disease, poor horticultural practice, extremes of weather and many other factors outside our control all take their toll. Goods will only be accepted for return after seller has been informed and given permission for their return.  Refunds will be issued when items are received back in saleable condition within 14 days from original dispatch date. Buyer must pay all return charges except where an item has been dispatched in error.
