Portulaca F1 Hybrid Mixed Color - Flower Seeds
The portulaca (Portulaca grandiflora), often called the sun rose or moss rose, is a stunning low-growing ground cover type plant. Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay are the native countries of portulaca plants. Flowers from portulacas are simple to grow and to enjoy.
Portulaca flowers grow well in the old cracks in the structures where winds have deposited just enough soil to support them. They have been used to beautify old structures and stone walkways. Portulaca flowers are truly beautiful in various garden and landscape settings.
With their mixture of lovely shades of pink, red, yellow, orange, deep lavender, cream, and white, portulaca flowers look lovely growing around the stones of a garden path.

- After planting, give them water, then observe what happens.
