Ten o’clock flower

Portulacea grandiflora is the one I have to plant each year. I even have a big glazed pot reserved just  for portulacea .The pot is on a sunny side and portulacea I plant there have to be of different colours. When new flowers bloom it  looks like a bouquet is arising from the glazed pot, each day a new bouquet, as different coloured flowers bloom in various combinations. There is only one rule, portulacea are in full bloom only on sunny days, at about ten o’clock in the morning. Just a perfect time to have a Sunday morning coffee!

p.s.:

Looking forward to seeing you! Tamara

  1. They really have such vivid color! A neighbor of mine planted them in the square around their tree in the sidewalk last spring, but they got trampled by all the dogs in the neighborhood. It was disappointing, because the colors are just so electric.

    1. I love them and can’t wait to plant them again, but for now it is still too cold here (at least at night).And then I will have problems, not with dogs, but with deer .Last year deer loved these flowers even more as I did …

  2. I have always loved the portulaca or as it is sometimes called Moss Rose. I especially the like the ones that are multi colored, splashed with pretty streaks. I didn’t know that about the 10:00 thing. I will have to pay more attention to mine.

  3. I am already planning for my spring garden & I think I need portulacas. I had no idea of the 10 O’clock name. I DO have a returning plant called 4 ‘ O clocks because they bloom at 4 every evening. Now I’m wondering if they have REAL name!

  5. CONGRATS! BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS, VIBRANT COLORS. THE TEN O’ CLOCK FLOWER AROUSED MY CURIOSITY. NATURE TELLS US THAT EVERYTHING MUST HAVE ITS TIME AND SPACE AND THAT MUST BE RESPECTED. MAN MUST LEARN A LOT FROM THS TEACHING.
