Purslane Portulaca oleracea 'Tequila Sunrise™'

Purslane

Sedan Purslane Tequila Sunrise is a unique beauty. Tequila Sunrise produces vivid deep pink blooms that fade to orange near its center. The blooms are amidst its lush green foliage that grows and trails gracefully over the edges of borders, baskets, containers and rock ledges. Sedan Purslane Tequila Sunrise is a heat-lover and sun-worshipper. It is also drought resistant which makes it a great choice for late Spring, Summer and Fall weather. Its rounded, succulent green leaves are a beautiful backdrop for its 1-1 1/2” blooms that bloom throughout the Spring, Summer and Fall. Purslane is at its peak when the sun is full and hot, then its blooms are opened up wide for the best display of color.

& Maintenance Tips

Sedan Purslane prefers full sun and is drought resistant, so if you forget to water occasionally…..don’t worry. For best results, do not over water your Purslane! You should deadhead spent plants just to make sure your Purslane continues to produce great blooms. Sedan Purslane does not require fertilizer, and too much of it will result in more foliage and fewer blooms.
