Every gardening season, I grow either vegetable or flowers or herbs or all three from scratch (scratch = germinated seeds turning into saplings turning into transplants). Where I presently live, I don't have much space for grand experiments, and the hot-dry summers make persistent watering a must. So, I chose the Portulaca-moss rose (altho a magnifying glass is required to find the seeds). It's a compact, edging plant that can thrive in Oklahoma's weather and soil. The flowers - orange, pink, purple, red, white, yellow - close at night. Excuse the gap; growth still in progress.
