Overall: Hi there. Abutilon megaotamicum and 'Kentish Belle' are great outdoors. They love a rich soil with lots of oompf. And are hardy down to about minus 12.
A moisture retentive soil will hold an abutilon in full sun but both of these varieties love the shade to. Even a north facing wall. If its sheltered from howling winds they can indeed flower for 10 months and more. I hope this helps.
