Abutilon pictum 'Gold Dust', often referred to as the Gold Dust plant, is a stunning variety of the flowering maple, renowned for its gorgeous foliage and vibrant blooms. It's a versatile plant, perfect for both outdoor gardens and indoor containers, offering a tropical touch wherever it's grown.
Abutilon pictum 'Gold Dust', part of the Malvaceae family, is a perennial shrub originating from Brazil. It's characterized by its unique maple-like leaves dusted with yellow specks, hence the 'Gold Dust' moniker. Its vibrant, bell-shaped flowers range in color from orange to red and add a splash of exotic beauty to any setting.
When planting Abutilon pictum 'Gold Dust', choose a location with well-draining soil and partial to full sunlight. The ideal soil pH is slightly acidic to neutral (6.1 to 7.5). You should plant in the spring or early summer to give it ample time to establish before colder months.
The 'Gold Dust' plant is a fast-growing species and can reach up to 15 feet in height, though it's often pruned to maintain a smaller, bushier shape. When growing indoors, it prefers temperatures between 60 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Regular watering is crucial, but allow the soil to dry between waterings to prevent root rot.
Pruning should be done in early spring to shape the plant and encourage bushier growth. Feed the plant with a balanced fertilizer once a month during the growing season, and less frequently during the winter months. Regularly check for pests such as spider mites, aphids, and whiteflies, and treat them accordingly.
Apart from its aesthetic appeal, the Gold Dust plant also has potential air-purifying qualities, making it a beneficial addition to indoor spaces. Additionally, it provides nectar for pollinators like bees and hummingbirds, enhancing the biodiversity of your garden.
