Description: Portulaca Double Mix is a delightful annual plant that produces an abundance of colorful double flowers throughout the summer months. With its vibrant blooms and succulent foliage, this variety adds a splash of color to garden beds, containers, and hanging baskets. Portulaca Double Mix is a low-maintenance plant that thrives in hot and sunny conditions, making it an excellent choice for gardeners seeking to add flair to their landscapes.

Planting Instructions:

  1. Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date or sow directly outdoors after the danger of frost has passed.
  2. Choose a well-draining location with full sun exposure.
  3. Scatter seeds lightly over the soil surface and cover lightly with a thin layer of soil.
  4. Keep the soil consistently moist until seedlings emerge, usually within 7-14 days.
  5. Once established, thin seedlings to allow for proper spacing (approximately 6-8 inches apart).
  6. Water sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings.
  7. Fertilize lightly with a balanced fertilizer every 4-6 weeks for optimal growth and flowering.
  8. Deadhead spent flowers regularly to encourage continuous blooming.

Growing Tips:

  • Portulaca Double Mix prefers well-draining soil and thrives in hot, dry conditions.
  • Avoid overwatering, as Portulaca is susceptible to rot in soggy soil.
  • Mulch around plants to conserve moisture and suppress weed growth.
  • Prune back leggy growth to encourage bushier, more compact plants.
  • Enjoy a stunning display of colorful blooms throughout the summer season!
