Portulaca grandiflora 'Calypso'

Moss Rose

Great for sun-drenched gardens, Moss Rose is a long-blooming, low-growing annual ground cover. Small red, pink, yellow, orange or white rose-shaped flowers open in the morning and close by afternoon, so they are not good cut flowers. Some newer varieties stay open all day. Established plants are highly heat- and drought-tolerant. Will grow in any soil, but flowers best in poor soils. Excellent for edging, in rock gardens, containers and hanging baskets. Plants often reseed.
