Botanical Pronunciationa-BEW-ti-lon AL-bus
LoreFlowering maple is not a maple at all. It is actually closer related to hibiscus, but the common name was inspired by the maple-like leaves of this tropical American plant. In Hawaii, this is a long time favorite flower for lei making.
Average Size at MaturityFast grower to 12 ft. tall and wide.
Bloom TimeSpring through Summer
Design IdeasThis tall, rangy plant with utterly charming bell-like flowers looks best spraying up and out of denser shrubs like Rose. Plant them behind lower-growing shrubs and perennials in borders, along steps and on slopes so you can look up into their hanging bells.

Companion PlantsThis lustrous white Abutilon looks heavenly when united with old-fashioned pink bush Rose like The Fairy (Rosa x 'The Fairy') and Cecile Brunner (Rosa x 'Cecile Brunner'). Or keep the snowy color scheme with white-flowering Iceberg (Rosa x 'Iceberg'). For a tropical look, plant this shrub with Japanese Aralia (Fatsia japonica) or place in a container with Licorice Plant (Helichrysum petiolatum) for a striking display.

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy, neat appearance, shear annually to shape.
