Portulaca grandiflora (Moss Rose)

  • Moss rose plants are popular bedding plants sold in nurseries and home improvement stores in the spring.
  • The succulent leaves of the portulaca are another clue to the wonderful drought-tolerance of this low-growing annual flower.
  • Flowers come in hot colors, like yellow, orange, red, and bright pink.
  • Botanical Name: Portulaca grandiflora and Common Name: Moss rose
  • Native Area: South America
LIGHT
  • Portulacas need six to eight hours of full sun to reach their potential.
  • If you try to grow portulacas in a shady area, they will pout and close up their flowers.
  • You will also notice the flowers close at night and on cloudy days.
SOIL
  • Portulacas demand well-drained soil.
  • If your soil is mostly clay, you should grow your portulacas in containers rather than try to turn the clay into the sandy, rocky soil that these plants love.
WATER
  • Portulacas are drought-tolerant, but they aren’t cacti.
  • The plants will tolerate periods of dryness, and you probably won’t return home to withered specimens after vacation, but flowering is better with regular irrigation.
  • Drip irrigation is best, as sprinklers can disfigure the delicate blooms.
FERTILIZER
  • Feed portulacas with a slow-release fertilizer (for flowers) twice a year, or once every 6 months.
