Common Name: Abutilon (Flowering Maple, Chinese Lantern)
Latin Name:Abutilon spp.
Family Name: Malvaceae
No known toxicity to animals although occasionally may cause skin irritation and allergy in humans. Tortoises love the sweet flowers when they are available. Often grown as a pot plant in the UK as this plant is sensitive to frosts.
Do not confuse with the Chinese Lantern (Physalis), which is a completely different plant.
