Our Portulacca garden
.
This little garden had miniature roses which struggled along on the side of the house which gets full sun. However, the roses were never very healthy and this year I made a mistake and accidentally sprayed them with weedkiller diluted with rose spray. They died so I removed them, dug the garden over and planted portulaccas.
.
Now having grown portulaccas before I knew that they loved the heat as they seem to be related to the cactus, and have the loveliest variety of clear, bright colours. The photo above shows our portulacca garden this season.
.
Here is a white portulacca flower. It is about 5 cm wide. I have photos of other colours too but felt that the white flower looked very special.
