South Bohemia, Czech Republic
Have just bought a small portulaca grandiflora. No indication on the pot of possible colour, nor of eventual height or whether it spreads widthwise. I had planned on putting it in a container to hang over the edge but looking on here that doesn't seem the most sensible use of it.
It doesn't look like the photos of the English Moss Rose by the way - the leaves are much bigger and rounder.
I have a big area of steep slope in the back garden with mainly low ground covering plants but also some height with various potentillas and true geraniums. Would it fit there perhaps?
I'm very excited because I also bought my first cranberries (from the reduced section) which were sold as excellent ground cover......
