Red Moss Rose Seeds (Portulaca grandiflora red)
Annual, over 25 seeds per package

Moss Rose succulent ground cover is hardy and makes a great addition for any hot landscape and they look great in patio containers, window boxes and hanging baskets, too. It establishes nicely from seeds and produces rounded, double, fragrant red flowers that are nestled above succulent foliage. It makes a wonderful contrast with its dark green leaves and bright red flowers and the bloom attracts pollinator like crazy. Red Moss Rose flowers form on the stem tips, and they open only during bright sunlight, closing at night and on cloudy days.

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.

Sow seeds in starter trays or individual pots 6 - 8 weeks before end of frost season. Press the seed into the soil but do not cover. The seeds need light to germinate. Transplant Moss Rose seedlings into the garden 12 inches apart, they 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.
