Red Flowering Maple
A 1993 AGM recipient, this coveted Abutilon is the marvelous progeny of 2 Brazilian species, Abutilon darwinii and Abutilon striatum. Lustrous, 3 in. wide dark maroon floral bells nodding amid large, forest-green foliage are its hallmark. Hummingbirds flock to the nonstop intensely hued blooms with incurved petals and prominent golden stamens, while the upright, somewhat stiff and fast growing, nearly black stems respond well to pruning. Grateful for protection from cold winter nights and scorching afternoon sun, easily cultivated ‘Nabob’ lends tropical-looking drama to a large vessel or garden nook.
