Portulaca is great for containers, rock gardens, between sunny stepping-stones, as an edging, or in any well-drained or dry garden spot. The sunnier the better. Heat, drought, and poor soil bring out the best of this plant. In fact, it flowers better in poor soil than rich.
Portulaca is covered with many large, semi-double flowers throughout the warm months to form a cheerful summer ground cover or trailing plant. The blooms need sunlight to open, so they close in the evening and on cloudy days. Portulaca grows vigorously, even in sandy soil. It is also salt tolerant, making a great choice for the beach. Plant in spring after all danger of frost is past.
Some Bonnie Plants varieties may not be available at your local stores, as we select and sell varieties best suited to the growing conditions in each region.
