Just look at how beautiful the Moss Rose is when you get a closer look at it.The Moss Rose (Portulaca grandiflora), is also known in Jamaica as the Ten O’Clock plant since it is usually in full bloom by that time.
Its true beauty was hardly recognized.
I had always wanted to capture the beauty of this rose-like flower, and today I got the chance to do just that.
The Moss Rose is also called Rose Moss, Portulaca, and Sun plant; it is edible, easy to grow, and hardy. However, it requires regular watering and full sun in order to bloom. See more photos below; the first of which, shows the Variegated Moss Rose.
