Portulacas are a highly unique annual, with fleshy, succulent-like foliage and gorgeous blooms that vary in colour. Fairly low growing, they’ll add a pop of colour while creating excellent ground cover in your garden. Undoubtedly, portulacas will be the talk of the town when they’re in your flowerbed!
Care is very easy. Being succulents, portulacas enjoy dry, sandy soil that other annuals may struggle to grow in. They also enjoy full sun, even during the afternoon, making portulacas an excellent choice for spots where other plants struggle to grow.
