Patrick I have two small cuttings of this one in my garage that haven't taken yet. They were collected this winter but are just hanging on. If they take, I'll give you one.

Patrick,
If you can't find this in trade, you might check out Minter's Earlington Greenhouse on Renton Ave South, just up the hill from the Renton airport.
I know they used to carry this Abutilon and many others---might be worth calling ahead to inquire.

I have an extra abutilon vitifolium you can have, but don't know how similar that is to what you're looking for. It's about 3 feet tall. It's one year old, haven't seen it bloom yet, but supposedly it's got blue and white flowers.

Hi Rick, please email about your abutilon, location & any plants you're looking for.
Thanks,

Patrick
