My neighbor had Moss Roses across the front of her house. They were in the sun all day and a bit neglected. The color was so pretty. Another neighbor used to put them in an old dishpan by her little red pump, in the backyard. I have never grown them, but thought I'd give them a try. A daughter-in-law gave me a large planter shaped like a coffee cup. It is red and white. I am going to put it on the table on our deck. The deck is the sunniest spot in our yard...I hope they do well here
This is what I found about them on a website....
Nothing beats this annuals nonstop showing of extremely vibrant colors that last all summer long. These cheerful spreaders enjoy full sun and are very heat and drought tolerant.They're fast growing and will reach a height of 6-8 inches and a 6-8 inch width. They look their best on bright sunny days where you'll find their blooms fully opened up. If you plant them 6-8 inches in spring you'll have a mass of color in no time.The fleshy prostrate plant looks best when massed in a large group in sandy, dry, well drained soil. They're also fantastic in containers and hanging baskets because their stems will cascade over the pot. They can be found in either single or double ruffled blossoms of red, rose, yellow, orange, and white--some are even striped. Transplants need a high amount of water at first, then you can cut back to deep waterings when the top 2-3 inches is dry to the touch.Portulaca seeds should be sown outside after your last frost has passed. You can also sow them indoors making sure the soil keeps a 68-86 degree temperature. Seeds will germinate within 10-15 days.
I'll take a picture, when I get the coffee cup planted. The only thing that I don't like about them, is that they close up on dreary days and when it rains. Well, most days in the summer are sunny...so I will have a cupful of color most of the time.
