Portulaca, or moss rose, is a popular drought-tolerant annual. Plants are low-growing spreaders with thick succulent stems and vibrant, cup-shaped flowers. Flowers come in a wide range of colors.
Portulacas love it hot and dry. You can plant them in poor, even sandy, soil.
They also adapt to average garden conditions. Just give them full sun and any well-drained soil. Moss roses don’t need much care. Water them after planting and watch them go. They’ll grow 4 to 8 inches high and spread 6 to 18 inches. You don’t even have to deadhead.
Portulaca, is easy to start from seed. Start them directly outdoors around the last frost date. Rake the soil surface and sow the seeds without covering them. In areas with shorter growing seasons, you can start the seeds indoors 6 to 8 weeks before planting them outside.
