    Portulaca. What a wonderful plant. We all know it as the wonderful Moss Rose. We love the variety Sundial. Many colors and an absolutely beautiful Fuchsia color. It loves the heat and dry weather. A lot of people use them around mailboxes by the street. The key is to keep them deadheaded, which is to remove the flowers once they start turning brown. They will bloom till frost.

    We also grow a couple of flat leafed varieties called Yubi and Duet. They take the heat and dryness even more. They are lower growing and used for ground covers in hot dry areas.

    I love Yubi and Duet and can recommend them to anyone. They go very well together when mixed, especially the red and yellow.

    We have expanded our Saturday hours in May and are now open 8 AM to 8 PM. Remember come early or late as it is relatively busy during the days on weekends in May.

    We truly do have a place that a lot of our customers call Plant Heaven. Please come on out and experience it yourself.
