Rose Moss

The odd little flowers in a pot out back go by the name of ‘rose moss’ around here! Some might alternately refer to them as ‘Mexican rose’, ‘moss rose’, or ‘eleven o’clock’ too. Once they bloom out they are gone in a day or two. I have seen three colors so far – reds, whites and yellows. We wonder that there might be one more color in this batch! I think these are the double-flower variety.


  1. Lovely pics of Portulaca grandiflora. These do extremely well in Summers in India too, one of few that enjoy temperatures over 40 C ( 100 deg. F). They flourish when temperatures rise. They come in numerous colours.
