Moss Rose (Portulaca Grandiflora White) - These sun-loving plants are easy to start from Moss Rose seeds. Gardeners are rewarded by the Moss Rose flowers and the easy-to-grow, low maintenance ground cover plants that are so versatile and hardy. These little white blooms are incredibly sweet, and they will self-sow their own Moss Rose seeds for next year's display. White Portulaca flower seeds are greatly rewarding to grow!
Sow White Moss Rose seeds in starter trays or individual pots 6 - 8 weeks before end of frost season. Press the Portulaca seeds into the soil but do not cover. The ground cover seed needs light to germinate. Transplant Moss Rose seedlings into the garden 12 inches apart. Moss Rose ground cover seeds can also be directly sown in prepared soil outdoors after all danger of frost. White Portulaca Moss Rose ground cover plants tolerate heat and drought, but they do look best with occasional watering. Moss Rose plant care includes cutting back the plants during the summer to help them to stay neat and to extend their blooms into fall.
