Happy Hour Mixture portulaca plants can bloom up to two weeks earlier and will grow fuller, when compared to other portulaca. Growth is mounding to 8-10 in. tall, and 10-12 in. wide. Large, vivid semi-double flowers begin blooming in late spring, and continue to flower all summer. Happy Hour Mixture is an excellent portulaca for containers, the landscape, or edging your mixed borders. Plants flourish in hot, dry, sunny conditions.

Kept at 75-80°F., germination is in 7-14 days. Transplant portulaca seedlings into your garden 5-8 in. apart, after all danger of frost.
Grow Portulaca: Full Sun. Plants tolerate heat and drought, look best with occasional water. Low maintenance, no deadheading required. Any soil with good drainage, will thrive in sandy or gravelly soils. Cut back in summer to keep plants neat, and to extend bloom into fall.
