Pot Size: 4" These Plants have trailing habit, so are excellent for containers, borders, pots and hanging baskets. Leaves are cylindrical and fleshy, small and pointed, and branches are round and succulent. Flowers open late in the morning and close in the afternoon and they are closed on cloudy days also.
Removing old blooms is extremely effective for stimulating new blooms. Portulacas need six to eight hours of full sun to reach their potential. If you try to grow portulacas in a shady area, they will pout and close up their flowers.
