Abutilon

Abutilon ‘Victor Reiter’ full sun  partial shade

Victor Reiter, the late well-known San Francisco plantsman, is paid homage through the spectacularly large blooms festooning his namesake. Amongst lush maple-shaped dark evergreen foliage, unopened buds, resembling miniature chartreuse pumpkins, give way to tangerine-colored, hibiscus-like flowers held by decorative yellow-green calyxes. The commanding show begs a prominent, even elevated position; stage it under taller trees, against a warm sheltered wall or as a container specimen in cooler climates. Adored by hummingbirds and plant aficionados, this Abutilon’s tailored yet vigorous habit craves well-drained adequately moist soil plus periodic pruning.

Blooms April–November

Size: 8' 0" high x 5' 0"–6' 0" wide; hardy to zone 7.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

You may wish to include one or more of these easily grown herbaceous perennials, ornamental grasses, shrubs or trees that wield plenty of October flair.
