The flowers of Portulaca will close at night and reopen the next day. They will tolerate dry soils, although they will perform optimally with average moisture. These are tough plants that will tolerate poor soils and do not need a lot of fertilizer to perform well. Deadheading is not needed.
This durable and colorful flowering succulent blooms all summer long in juicy shades of tangerine, pink, red, fuchsia, and yellow without deadheading. Choose which color suits your color palette when you buy. The vivid blooms are a welcome sight especially in high summer when they really come into their own. This plant is a great choice for warm climates and poor, drier soils.
