Grow & Care

  • Portulacas love it hot and dry. You can plant them in poor, even sandy, soil.
  • They also adapt to average garden conditions. Just give them full sun and any well-drained soil.
  • Moss roses don’t need much care. Water them after planting and watch them go.
  • They’ll grow 4 to 8 inches high and spread 6 to 18 inches. You don’t even have to deadhead. If plants get scraggly, you can cut them back.
  • Don’t fertilize too much; it will encourage plants to produce thick foliage but fewer flowers.

Moss rose plants are popular bedding plants sold in nurseries and home improvement stores in the spring.

You can also root prune them each year to maintain a convenient size. Alternatively, for mature plants, remove just the top layer of soil in the pot and replace this with fresh compost each spring.

Buy ready to use nutrient rich soil

In general use a soil-based compost placed over a generous layer of drainage material such as earthenware crocks, pebbles or gravel. Water and feed regularly, especially while plants are bearing flowers and fruit, when a high-potash fertilizer is recommended.
