Portulaca is the ideal plants for hanging baskets due to its low, 6 inch tall growth and its incredible drought resistance succulent foliage. This deer resistant annual is notorious for dropping seeds and coming up the next year.

Portulaca prefers dryer, sandy soils and it prefers to dry out between waterings if possible. This is our go to annual when someone asks for a flower that is hard to kill or for someone starting a flower bed in the hot summer heat. It is an excellent plant for rock gardens and butterfly gardens.

Portulaca comes in yellow, pink, red, orange, lavender and white flowers. This plant is native to South America and considered a tender perennial in tropical climates that do not get freezing temperatures.
