You’ll be surprised and delighted by the appearance of this succulent. The pink or purple leaves bloom brightly, appearing from late spring to early fall. Tiny, oval-shaped variegated leaves sport green middles and creamy edges that turn pink when given just enough sunlight. The lanky pink stems grow upwards, moving towards the sun. This succulent should be planted in well-draining soil and should only be watered when the soil is dry. Drought-tolerant, it will do well in high heat. Portulaca pilosa is an annual plant that needs relatively little care and attention, but be sure to remove it from the garden before it sets seed and takes over. This plant spreads easily if not controlled.
