Abutilon Pictum (Redvein Abutilon)

Although these beautiful flowers open by day, they display showy nocturnal deep red cerise colour.

Abutilon pictum 'Nabob', Flowering maple, or Redvein abutilon (Family Malvaceae) is a species of Abutilon native to Brazil and Argentina. It is an erect evergreen shrub growing to 5 m tall, with large, 5–15 cm long, three- to five- (rarely seven-) lobed maple-like leaves and nodding, deep cerise crimson bowl-shaped flowers 6-7cm across with five petals, prominently veined darker red.
