Portulaca Grandiflora is a succulent flowering plant in the family Portulacaceae, native to Argentina, southern Brazil, and Uruguay and often cultivated in gardens. It has many common names, including rose moss, ten o'clock, Mexican rose, moss rose, Vietnam Rose, sun rose, rock rose, and moss-rose purslane Moss Rose (Portulaca Grandiflora Mix) - Moss Rose seeds establish easily and produce the perfect ground cover plants for an eye-catching display of long-lasting, tropical color. Portulaca Moss Rose works well in hot, dry garden spots. The 2-inch flowers on these ground cover plants are fully double and beautifully shaped. The blooms stay opened for long periods of time, and they are nestled above the succulent foliage like shrub roses.

These Portulaca ground cover plants grow to 6 inches tall and spread an incredible 14 -16 inches in the sunny garden. In addition to ground cover, Portulaca Moss Rose plants are perfect for filling containers to overflowing with small, needle-like foliage and masses of great blooms.

Sow Moss Rose ground cover seed in starter trays or individual pots 6 - 8 weeks before end of frost season. Press the Moss Rose seeds into the soil but do not cover. The seeds need light to germinate. Transplant the Moss Rose seedlings into the garden 12 inches apart. Portulaca seeds can also be directly sown in prepared soil outdoors after all danger of frost. Moss Rose ground cover plants tolerate heat and drought, but they do look best with occasional watering.

Portulaca Moss Rose care includes cutting back the plants during the summer to help them to stay neat and to extend their blooms into fall.
