The Double Moss Rose Mixture

Our low-maintenance, lively selection includes fully double, ruffly varieties in shades of red, pink, yellow, white, and orange. Moss Roses thrive on blazing sun and heat. Planted in the ground, they'll sprawl happily to about 1' wide and provide continuous waves of vivid, 1"-wide flowers, while in a container their stems drape gracefully.

  • Information
  • Portulaca grandiflora. Perhaps Moss Roses get their name from their low-growing habit and old-fashioned, rose-like flowers. Overwatering is the only thing that makes them unhappy, and fertilizing produces more foliage but fewer flowers. Seeds are best direct-sown after the last spring frost date and left uncovered as light aids germination. If sowing indoors, start them 6 to 8 weeks ahead. Transplant them gently into the garden to minimize root disturbance. Moss Roses prefers sandy, well-draining soil and full sun. Deer resistant. Annual. Summer-flowering. Height: 3" to 6".

    Average seed life: 2 to 3 years.
