The beauty of moss rose
I've grown moss rose since we had a rock garden in front of our Spanish Tudor house in Iowa. We lived there when Christopher was a baby and toddler.
It is doing fairly well in the garden. However, look at the way the above moss rose looks in the container on the deck.
I saw something similar in a magazine and thought it lovely. All I did was plant five moss rose starts in one clay pot in May. Since moss rose grows like a ground cover, placing a lot of plants in one container (probably 12" or so) creates a fullness you don't see on the ground.
It absolutely loves heat and drought! It has to have full sun to flower.
