Abutilon grandifolium, or Hairy Indian Mallow, is a large shrub that is 2 metres (6 ft 7 in) high with broad, 1–6 centimetres (0.39–2.36 in) leaves. The fruits are schizocarps that are 1.4–1.5 centimetres (0.55–0.59 in) in diameter and 1–1.1 centimetres (0.39–0.43 in) tall.
The species is native to South America, but it is naturalised in other parts of the world, including tropical Africa, the Canary Islands, Hawaii and in shrubland and loamy areas of Australia. In Western Australia it was found in Swan Coastal Plain.
In Western Australia it is considered not threatened.
