Unusual colours here Hazel, it has a very muted look that is very attractive!

I'm with Jackie @30pics4jackiesdiamond and on first glance read ablution too. Must be my age.

Quite hardy really. A friend has a slightly different variety which grows on a sheltered side wall and flowers nearly all year.

Lovely plant. I think this is Abutilon "Kentish Belle" as I had a couple at my last house. The bees love it!

Fantastic flower and shot...

Some friends have taken cuttings and have pots and pots of this variety in their garden. Our is one straggly plant! But it gives nice flowers.

@quietpurplehaze If I remember correctly, it responds well to a good cutting back in the Spring.

I'll tell the gardener! (Actually I'm not a gardener but I can see that if you cut back our spindly little plant there would be nothing left - but I'll tell the gardener.....)
