Moss Roses

Moss Roses

The moss roses (Portulaca Grandiflora), also commonly known as 10'o clock flower is an exceptionally hardy flower. It can survive even the worst of summers. Being a good flowering plant with numerous varieties, moss roses make for a good decorative plant. Requiring very less care and requiring the least water moss roses are extremely easy to plant and their feature of vegetative propagation, moss roses almost never die once you've put up a small stem. But these bloom only in the summer, being dormant all throughout the year.
I too have some moss roses, in three colours, a multiple shaded white-pink variety, a solid pink and another one, a solid white variety. Moss roses are extremely easy to carry over from one place. All you need is just a stem from your plant, and you can plant wherever you want.
Since my moss roses are blooming now, I captured some blooms last sunday.

Here are some shots.

  2. Nice shots..... My suggestion is to shoot flowers in the shade/cloudy days/morning or evening to avoid hard sun and associated problems....

    1. Thanks for visiting my blog and your suggestion Debopam. But, some of these flowers bloom in sun only, like, the Ghazania, Moss Roses and such, which can't be captured early morning or in the evening, though, shade can be done. I'll try capturing some shots in shade.
