Can anyone tell me what this plant is?  Outdoors in pot in summer, indoors in pot in winter.  Have taken 8 cuttings last Autumn, all taken and have potted up in single pots.    On windowsill facing S.E.  Main plant has now bloomed, has three more buds on it.  The mother plant is several feet high, has soft, varigated leaves, five points to it similar to a sycamore leaf (I think). The flower is a vivid orange, bell shaped.  I have tried to add a photo but not successful. Love to hear from anyone with ideas as am planning to give cuttings away and would love a name to add. Thanks.

I can't see your photo - drat! But I'm sure all the experts on here are right

I am so thrilled.  Have looked it up and yes! you are right, it is an abutilon.  My description must have been pretty good.  I thank you all, you are great.
