Annual Plants


Annual plants fall under two categories - hardy and half-hardy. Hardy annuals can be grown outdoors and will tolerate cooler tempratures, whereas the more tender half-hardy annuals need protection and must not be planted out until all risk of frost has passed. These delightful summer flowers add colour and interest to beds, borders, containers and hanging baskets.

Portulaca 'Tropical Mixed'

  • The ultimate in drought tolerance
  • Succulent foliage stores water
  • Flowers thrive in full sun

The fleshy foliage of Portulaca stores water, so once established these plants will thrive in drought conditions and sun-scorched borders. Forget to water these plants for a week or so and they will forgive you, but it is the flowers on these portulaca plants that will impress you the most. Silky, wavy blooms, often with strong marbling, open in full sun to reveal their spectacular tropical colours against the backdrop of fleshy foliage. The plants look great as ground cover, tumbling down banks or spilling out from rockeries. Stuck for floral options in a coastal garden? These will thrive in the heat and salt laden winds. Height: 20cm (8"). Spread 30cm (12").
