Abutilon are very beautiful shrubs that are native to Chili, in South America. They are plants that undeniably bring a touch of exotic colors to any garden.

There are over 120 different species of Abutilon. Some of them look like grasses, others are closer to vines or shrubs. In all cases, flowers are very appealing and, sometimes, leaves are surprising, too.

Together with hollyhock, tree mallow and hibiscus, Abutilon is part of the large mallow family.

Among the commonly grown or interesting cultivars are the following:

  • Abutilom megapotamicum, also called Trailing Abutilon – It crawls and even climbs if a lattice is provided. Red-orange flowers and deep green leaves make it a favorite.
  • Abutilon hybrids – They boast a nice shrub-like shape. Flowers also appear in a variety of colors from white to red, going through purple, silver pink and even yellow.
  • Abutilon pictum – This variety stands out thanks to its leaves dotted with yellow spots. Generally, flowers range in hues centered around orange tints.
  • Abutilon striatum or Redvein Indian Mallow – These offer abundant orange to red flowers from spring to fall.
  • Abutilon vitifolium – Certainly among the tallest of the Abutilon family. They can climb to at least 20 or 23 feet (6 to 7 meters) tall. Additionally, its purple blooms are a great match to the pastel green leaves!

Learn more about Indian jasmine

Indian jasmine, native to Asia, earned its name due to the jasmine-like fragrance that emanates from its blooming.

Its inflorescence is very beautiful and its evergreen leafage lasts all year long. It is a relatively hardy climbing vine.

This beautiful climbing shrub is easy to care for and maintaining it is a breeze.

It is perfectly suited to covering a wall, but also makes for great ground cover or pot arrangement material.

  • Note that if you grow it in a pot it will stay small.

At the beginning, attach your Indian jasmine to a lattice because it has trouble starting off. Afterwards, it will wind around on its own.

Indian jasmine names

Other names for Indian jasmine include the following:

  • Star jasmine – this is due to the shape of the flower, with its evenly-spaced five petals
  • Confederate jasmine – mostly a name used in the United States. The origin of this name probably comes from it growing exceedingly well in the American South-Eastern states. These were formerly dubbed the Confederate States of America during the American Civil War.
