Chinese Lantern Plant

This summer I noticed an exotic plant in the San Diego County Park that is also the home of the haunted Whaley House* in Old Town San Diego.  Visitors would often stop by and admire the Chinese lantern-like flowers.

It is called Abutilon pictum, Flowering Maple, and Chinese Lantern Plant and is a wonderful addition to our garden.
