Moss Rose Mix Portulaca Grandiflora is an annual flowering plant native to Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay. For early flowering Moss Rose Mix seeds can be started indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost in spring, or they can be sown directly outdoors in spring after last frost. Portulaca Grandiflora is compact growing succulent plant that forms a moss-like, dense foliage mat and blooms with masses of stunning single, semi-double or double, flowers in red, rose, orange, yellow, white and pastel shades from summer to frost.
Moss Rose Mix makes a wonderful flowering ground cover for flower beds, rock gardens or along walks, and Moss Rose looks magnificent overflowing containers, hanging baskets, or sprawling over stone walls with small, needle-like foliage and masses of great blooms. Portulaca Grandiflora seeds germinate fast, and rapidly growing, drought tolerant Moss Rose is perfect choice for poor dry soils where many other plants struggle. Moss Rose reseeds itself when conditions allow.
