What do you get when you mix a Moss Rose with an old wheelbarrow? A bloomin’ good time!
All of our summer rain has turbo-charged this succulent plant into a container of pure happiness. It’s called a Moss Rose, and they are very hardy. A succulent plant that can handle less than perfect soil. As you can see, they grow well in containers (my wheelbarrow is completely covered.)
I bought one small plant a few years ago at Lowes. What you see here is a mixture of several plants over the years, as I migrated different ones into the wheelbarrow. They are annuals; however, mine keep coming back year after year because they happily reseed themselves.
Moss Rose likes full sun and can grow up to about 8 – 12 inches. They are great in containers, borders … and even as a ground cover. They are very easy to grow and drought tolerant. These are one of my most favorite flowers to grow – especially in our hot climate. Befriend one today and you will soon be rewarded with my years of happiness.
