|Abutilon pictum flower|
Abutilon pictum — syn. Abutilon striatum, and commonly known as Redvein Abutilon, Red Vein Indian Mallow, Redvein Flowering Maple, or Red vein Chinese lanterns, is a species of Abutilon in the Malvaceae family.  It is native to southern Brazil and Argentina, and Paraguay and Uruguay. The plant has become naturalised in Central America, and common in horticulture.
The yellow to orange-red bell shaped flowers have prominent dark red veining, with five petals 2–4 cm long. It blooms from April to September, and longer in warmer subtropical areas. The flowers attract pollinators, such as native bees and hummingbirds.
Abutilon pictum is cultivated as a popular ornamental plant, for use in gardens in subtropical climates. They are also planted in containers or pots, on patios and balconies outdoors, or as winter house plants.
