I planted portulaca (also called moss rose) from seed late this year (late means June), so I only got a few blossoms. Here is one that was still alive in October. These flowers are delicate, open only in late morning and die when it starts to get cold. Sometimes they reseed – hopes for next summer.

So very long since I last saw a portulaca! I have not seen one in Melbourne, but when I was a child in Sydney they were a popular garden variety! Lovely photo!
It looks pretty shot. Happy SOOC Sunday.
Stunning. Great photography
Interesting how this tiny flower looks both fragile and sturdy.
They tolerate drought (fat leaves to hold water) and heat well but not cold and frost. Other plants sometimes overtake them; I have to pull up most of my white alyssum in order to let a few portulaca have room to grow.
I love this delicate little flower, so pretty!
So delicate and it has a wonderful color.
How delicate looking, although they are so hardy. I love moss roses, they are so lovely, as is your photo.
