Planting and care
Portulaca Sundial love it hot and dry. You can plant them in poor, even sandy, soil. They also adapt to average garden conditions.
Just give them full sun and any well-drained soil. Water them after planting and watch them go. They ll grow 4 to 8 inches high and spread 6 to 18 inches. You don t even have to deadhead.
If plants get scraggly, you can cut them back. Don t fertilize too much; it will encourage plants to produce thick foliage but fewer flowers.
|Full sunlight||Prefer sandy well drained soils.||When they are watered just a light watering will do as their root zone is very shallow.||The plants can also be started indoor at 70 to 85Â°F (21 to 29Â°C).||There s no need for fertilizer with the portulaca, as it will do fine on its own.|
