Portulaca is covered with many large, semi-double flowers throughout the warm months to form a cheerful summer ground cover or trailing plant. The blooms need sunlight to open, so they close in the evening and on cloudy days. Portulaca grows vigorously, even in sandy soil. It is also salt tolerant, making a great choice for the beach. Plant in spring after all danger of frost is past. Also known as moss rose.
