Moss Rose (Portulaca Grandiflora mix) 120 seeds (#1244)

Fine, succulent leaves and vibrantly colored flowers make this tough little annual a favorite bedding plant for hot, full sun. Moss rose is a low-growing, spreading plant that originates from South America. When temperatures warm up, it bears glowing pink flowers that just stay open in the morning.
The bright green leaves of moss rose are fleshy, needle-like and supported by green, red or magenta stems. In the heat of the summer it produces many five-petaled flowers, each petal being thin with the appearance of crepe paper. Wild plants have magenta pink or white flowers, but cultivated forms can come in shades of red, salmon, pale pink or orange. They are naturally morning bloomers that close their petals by afternoon. Insects pollinate the flowers and capsules filled with lots of small, shiny black seeds follow.
Moss rose grows well in hot sun but should be provided afternoon sun in areas that are arid and scorching in summer. Average, perfectly drained soil is needed for good growth and flowering. Moss rose is drought tolerant once established but still performs best with regular food and water.
It makes a colorful addition to border edges, hanging baskets, rock gardens or containers.
