Abutilon indicum – Indian Mallow (Indian abutilon).

The Indian Mallow is a herbaceous perennial with bisexual flowers for pollination.

They like well draining, fertile soil with plenty of sunlight and can grow to around 1 – 2.5m high x 1 – 1.5m wide.

They have yellow unscented flowers with soft, silvery, heart shaped blue / green leaves. They are drought and flood tolerant.

The Indian Mallow is said to greatly increase sperm production and fertility. It is traditionally used to treat lung diseases such as tuberculosis, colic, coughs and bronchitis. To treat these ailments, all parts of the plant are boiled down into decoction and drunk. This strong ‘tea’ drink is said to relieve symptoms and boost immunity and also assist in relieving symptoms of colds and fevers. Diarrhoea and internal worms can be treated by the seeds of the plant. It is also believed to assist in healing ulcers and boils, assisting the liver, fighting and controlling bacteria and fungi and for those suffering from degenerative nerve diseases, it is believed that the leaves may assist.
