    Marissa ,
    Yes is Abutilon! And I have one! Is easy to grow this palnt if you respect this: Plant growth is not very slow and is able to bloom at any time of year if you have light and heat. Require more water during the spring-summer. Earth remains permanently wet. In winter moisten a little, so as not to leave the land to dry completely.
    Summer is fertilize 2-3 times per month with solutions of mineral fertilizers for plants with flowers.
    Protect the plant from wind and rain:to break branches and flowers are very delicate. When moisture can rust appear.
    There are another color :yelow,red ,orange and one is multicolor. I never see but he is here (because I read this)
    It is a beautiful plant ,and I send you a picture of flowers when is flowering my.
    If you have another question I promiss I respond you very quiqly and good.
    I hope so you can understand my english !
    And because in my country today is few :mother Day I wish you all the best !

    Not sure if they're going to open more but they look so cute just hanging like a lantern and that's probably when they are called Japanese lantern.

    Marissa certainly you love this plant! I want little pictures of the red flower when is blomming!
    I forgot to tell you : Abutilonul needs a lot of light but not direct sun rays.
    Multiplication: spring by seeds or seedlings. Spring you cut from the "mother plant", several shoot around 12-16 cm which you planted in sandy soil and having to care located in a light, warm and well ventilated.
    I tell you in my country is few .It is extended to all the women not only to mother.
    My dear women friends on this forum ! It is our day !Be Happy !
