Moss Rose (Portulaca Grandiflora) -Portulaca ground cover is hardy and makes a great addition for any hot landscape. It establishes nicely from Moss Rose seeds and produces rounded, double, fragrant flowers that are nestled above succulent foliage. It makes a wonderful contrast with its dark green leaves and bright red flowers. Moss Rose flowers form on the stem tips, and they open only during bright sunlight, closing at night and on cloudy days. Portulaca Moss Rose makes a wonderful ground cover plant growing well in poor, sandy or gravelly soils. The soil must be very well-drained for this ground cover plant to flourish.
GROWING MOSS ROSE FROM SEED
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 Moss Rose seedlings into the garden 12 inches apart. Red Portulaca seeds can also be directly sown in prepared soil outdoors after all danger of frost. Moss Rose plants tolerate heat and drought, but they do look best with occasional watering. Moss Rose plant care includes cutting back the plants during the summer to help them to stay neat and to extend their blooms into fall.

***Note: It is normal for tropical seed germination to be sporadic from as little as 30 days to 6 months or more- so patience is required. Buyers should do their own research for plant uses if needed.
BE PREPARED – Some Seed can be somewhat difficult to germinate – much patience and time may be required – please don’t be wondering why the seeds have not germinated after short periods of time. This is normal. Several months will be needed for some seed.
Some seeds require some experience in growing. We provide germination guidance and recommend that you do some research before ordering if you feel unsure. Growing plants from seed is supposed to be fun. Sometimes it is successful and sometimes not- this is the way it is with gardening. Because we are not there to plant them, we cannot be responsible for germination failure due to improper planting or climate conditions. We will always send you viable seeds
Seed is a live product which depends on many important grower skills such as proper planting time, seed depth, type of soil, watering, light intensity, proper use of fertilizers, weed controls, fungicides, insecticides, soil conditions, and reasonable weather during the growing period. These factors are totally out of the sellers control, and germination and growing results are the buyer’s responsibility and risk.
