Garden Flower for ID : 180711 : AK-2: Taken at Kodaikanal on 23/10/2008.
Found these in a number of places in different colors.
Indian Mallow?


Abutilon species. (could be A.voodoo?)


This is Abutilon striatum Dickson ex Lindl. of Malvaceae; found in high altitudes of TN.

Kindly refer


Yes this is Abutilon striatum see the link

Or perhaps Abutilon hybridum.

Differences between two would be interesting to explore.


Yes  … Abutilon hybridum


My ID is based on the photographs available in the net especially toptropicals.com, wherein a large number of ornamental Abutilon pictures are posted. I had chosen A. hybridum and A. voodoo initially and later went for A.voodoo. It is quite possible this could be some other species, as the photographs are always deceptive and direct observations are the best for ID.


I too stand for Abutilon hybridum of Malvaceae family and I think the main difference is in the leaf. In A.striatum the leaves are much/ deeply lobed whereas in A. hybridum the leaves are generally bigger and less lobed. A. hybridum leaves has a maple like in appearance.
In A. hybridum the calyx is broader whereas in A. striatum it is narrower and longer than that of the other species.

Both these species generally show huge variation in leaf size and shape, flower color etc


Can you please highlight the difference, taxonomic-ally, between A.voodoo and A. hybridum
