Portulaca, or Moss Rose as some people call it, is a low growing ground cover. Make sure portulaca is planted in full sun; if it is planted in shade it may not bloom. Portulaca does not like too much fertilizer – it can cause portulaca plants to have bright beautiful leaves and no flowers. They are sold in a mix of colors.
Portulaca can be purchased as a 4-pack at $2.25 or in a flat of 48 plants (12 packs) at $22.00 making each pack $1.80
