Abutilon ( Lantern of China )

Abutilon


I knew that this flower is called lantern of China in English name. This flower is also called "lamp of Tyrol" in Japanese. Both names are cute and also they tell its shape very well.
My book says that there are several different kinds of abutilon around the world.
When I bought it at a gardening shop, it was small plant, but it extended the branches rapidly and started to have many flowers. It seems that it is a low temperature resistance, but it is weak in high temperature.
I worry if it can grow in hot and humid summer in Japan.

Language of the flower.     Taste.
