I am fascinated by the Parlor Maple “Thompsonii” (Abutilon Pictum ‘Thompsonii’) which is a tender evergreen shrub.  I planted this shrub in May and it has grown like crazy.  It will grow as tall as 8 feet in sun to part shade.  The light orange blooms striped with dark orange are just starting to appear.

I did find a great website called “About Home” at http://gardening.about.com/od/floweringshrubs/p/Abutilon.htm that will tell you all about this wonderful shrub.  We are in zone 8 here in Pensacola, Florida so I might have to cover this plant when temperatures fall.  Enjoy!
