Rio Grande Purslane is a low-growing, vigorous annual that blooms heavily in the heat of summer. We carry them in hanging baskets in a variety of colors: magenta, orange, and yellow. Compared to other varieties, the Rio Grande variety is known for its tropical look. It is a prostrate trailing annual that typically grows to 4-6" tall with a spread to 10-12" wide. By nature, Purslane is a succulent, therefore making it drought resistant and a fan of well-drained soil. Plant in a sunny spot and it will bloom all year long.
