Details

Portulaca oleracea 'Colorblast' series sets a new standard for this drought-tolerant annual and adds excitement with the first ever striped as well as double flowered portulaca (also called Purslane). 'Colorblast Double Magenta' has large double glowing flowers that don't close like single flowered portulaca because the full petalage won't allow it. Purslane is a low-maintenance annual perfect for the sunny border, containers, or rock gardens. Heat and drought tolerant. Attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.
