Abutilon x Hibiscus

Dr. Masters referred to an Abutilon raised and shown by Mr. George, of Putney, and stated to be a hybrid between the pollen parent, Hibiscus rosa sinensis, and an Abedtilon.[sic] An examination of the flower showed that, though the hybrid was a genuine Abutilon, there were yet traces of the structure in the column characteristic of Hibiscus. The lower leaves, too, were like those of Hibiscus, and some of them were marked with a crimson blotch.
