Planting and care

A flowering maple requires full sun to partial shade outdoors and a bright room indoors. The plant may require shading from afternoon sun. Whether grown outside or inside, the shrub requires well-draining soil and a planting area or container to accommodate its growth.
Outdoors, you should lay a 2-inch layer of mulch around the shrub from the roots extending out to the drip line to prevent weeds and moisture loss. You may use any organic material, including bark or compost.

Full Sun to Partial Shadewell-drained soilMedium70 degrees F. Apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Abutilon persicum

    Outdoors, a flowering maple requires moderate water in the summer so that the soil is lightly but consistently moist. The shrub thrives with a yearly feeding using a liquid fertilizer. If the shrub lacks nourishment, the lower leaves may drop. Indoors, you can water these plants until the soil feels slightly moist and allow soil to dry out slightly between waterings.
    Make sure to water at the roots and not overhead to avoid disease. Indoor plants need a bimonthly feeding with a water-soluble 20-20-20 fertilizer.
