Yellow Moss Rose
Moss Rose (Portulaca Grandiflora Yellow) - The Moss Rose is a ground cover plant that many gardeners will turn to for the hottest, driest, most problematic spots in the garden, and it establishes nicely from Moss Rose seeds. This 6 inch tall Portulaca plant is a succulent that thrives in heat, drought, and lousy soil. It rewards gardeners with nonstop color. Yellow Portulaca ground cover looks at home in a sun-drenched area of the flower garden, a rock garden, or in containers. Portulaca Moss Rose plants often reseed themselves, coming back the next growing season with the same vivid color and beauty.
Sow Moss Rose seeds in starter trays or individual pots 6 - 8 weeks before end of frost season. Press the ground cover seed 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 ground cover 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
