Hailing from the hot bed of great garden plants...the semi-tropical/warm temperate region of Southern Brazil and surrounding Uruguay and Argentina comes Brazilian bellflower. Abutilon megapotamicum is a fun and easy-to-grow hummingbird magnet for the perennial border. In the garden or in a hanging basket, Abutilon megapotamicum spreads to several feet wide in a single season. In the wild, Abutilon megapotamicum reaches 8' tall, but in temperate climate gardens, it rarely exceeds 5' tall, and less when grown as a container plant. From late summer until frost, the plants are laden with cool 2" hanging, lantern-like flowers composed of red calyces above the yellow petals, ending with its bright red privates dangling beneath...all carefully arranged between the thumb-sized green leaves. How about a hot Brazilian for your garden?
