Design IdeasPlanted in a container, this Abutilon will arch its rangy arms over a patio, dangling its pretty bells. Makes a nice framework for a Niobe Clematis (Clematis x 'Niobe') to climb upon. Like all Abutilons, this hybrid looks beautiful by a set of steps. When planted behind lower-growing shrubs, it will emerge gracefully above and through them.
