Portulaca Summer Blaze Seeds

7 items left

Portulaca Summer Blaze is a flower producing powerhouse. Despite not requiring any attention (once the seedlings have emerged), even in the most demanding garden situations such as along side compacted driveways, dry parts of a rockery or underneath an established tree, Portulaca Summer Blaze rises to the challenge. Portulaca Summer Blaze is a spectacularly bright flowering ground cover that can add the most beautiful mix of colour to any garden. This variety has the typical fine succulent foliage common to most portulacas, however Summer Blaze consists purely of large ultra-bright flowering varieties, which provide much more spectacular colour and flower far more profusely than the heirloom varieties from the 50's and 60's. This self-seeding variety is an ideal cottage garden plant, as it will generally grow as a quasi-perennial, by renewing itself through naturalised seedlings. Portulaca Summer Blaze is suitable for pots (including hanging-baskets), borders, and rockeries and is often inter-planted between established plants to provide additional colour, particularly in cottage garden style settings. Portulaca Summer Blaze produces the brightest colour of all the Portulaca varieties available.
