Description

Portulaca (Moss Rose) por-tew-LAK-uh

A truly beautiful, low-growing groundcover type plant is called the portulaca (Portulaca grandiflora), sometimes known as the sun rose or moss rose. Portulaca plants are native to Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay. Portulaca flowers are easy to grow and enjoy. Portulaca tolerates many kinds of soil but prefers sandy, well-drained soil and loves the full sunlight. These plants are excellent for their high heat and drought tolerance. The cylindrical foliage of the portulaca flower retains moisture very well, thus, regular watering is not needed. When they are watered, just a light watering will do, as their root zone is very shallow.
