Portulaca, or moss rose, is an annual flower with a profusion of sunny flower colors combined with its toughness to make it a natural for difficult garden sites. It will do even better under less difficult conditions.Moss roses grow nearly prostrate — a mat of fleshy leaves with stems topped by flowers. Newer varieties are available in a myriad of jewel-like colors — yellow, gold, orange, crimson, pink, lavender, purple, and white.
