Lucky Lantern Abutilon Red (‘NUABRED’) is the latest addition to the Lucky Lantern series of new compact generic dwarf Abutilons. They have a tight rounded habit, providing  support for the outward faced bell shaped flowers. They are quick and easy to grow; needing one pinch of the central stem which will establish the bushy habit, and no further pinching is required. The quick finish time, from a 72 cell pack to a quart planted in spring, takes just 6-8 weeks. The masses of buds and flowers has the added advantage of plants giving a long retail shelf life. With the flowers giving superb coverage of color and having a long blooming season these Abutilons are sure winners. These plants are ideal for many gardening uses and applications.
