Abutilon parvulum is a species of flowering plant in the mallow family known by the common names dwarf Indian mallow and dwarf abutilon and native to the southwestern United States and northern Mexico.[1][2]

This is a perennial herb growing from a woody root and producing a multibranched stem to a maximum height near 40 centimetres (16 in). The oval or heart-shaped leaves are 1 to 4 centimetres (0.39 to 1.57 in) wide. The stem and foliage are covered thinly in woolly hairs. The solitary flowers have light orange to red rounded petals just a few millimeters long. The fruit is a fuzzy body nearly a centimeter long divided into five segments.
