What is Special About Moss Rose

Moss Rose is most commonly grown as a compact ground cover for flower beds, along walkways or in rock gardens. Moss Rose is also great for hanging baskets, plantings over stone walls, and its unique, needle-like foliage and masses of large colorful blooms create an amazing look in any garden. Portulaca Grandiflora seeds are easy to germinate and are fast growing. Moss Ross tolerates heat, drought and poor soil making it a ground cover plant that survives in areas where many other plants struggle.

Annual Care for Moss Rose

A great thing about the Moss Rose plant is that it doesn't require any deadheading. It will keep blooming all season long with no additional care needed. However, these plants do produce a large amount of seed, so you may see newcomers coming back each year if you plant them once.

About Moss Rose

Moss roses are native to Uruguay, Brazil and Argentina. The first seeds were collected at the foot of the Andes Mountains by Dr. John Gilles, who was a Scottish physician, explorer and botanist. He sent many of his discoveries to England’s Royal Botanic Gardens. Portulaca has been popular in the United States for at least 200 years. Moss Rose has a long history in gardening, so it is no wonder that the plant is among the most popular!

About this item

  • Moss rose seed mix is an annual flowering plant growing in USDA Zones 4 - 9. It will establish quickly, bloom profusely through the summer months, later dying with the first killing frost. However, if seeds manage to fall to the bare ground beneath, the flowers can regrow the following season.
  • Portulacas will produce beautiful, 2 inch, paper like flowers in an array of colors including red, pink, yellow, white, purple & rose. The plants themselves only mature to a height of roughly 3 to 6 inches tall and 12 to 14 inches wide, making it an excellent groundcover plant.
  • It makes a great edging plant for the front of a sunny border or grow it in containers and baskets. This mix produces 2 inch, rose-like blooms of intense colors that continue all summer long.
  • Moss Rose thrives even in poor, sandy soil and can spread 14 inches establishing itself as an effective groundcover in no time.
  • Plant 1000 of these heirloom, non gmo flower seeds to cover approximately 20 square feet when sowing as a ground cover seed.
