Maintenance Notes:

The flowers of Portulaca will close at night and reopen the next day.  They will tolerate dry soils, although they will perform optimally with average moisture.  These are tough plants that will tolerant poor soils and do not need a lot of fertilizer to perform well.  Deadheading is not needed.
