Moss rose, Portulaca grandiflora, is a drought and heat tolerant annual native to hot, dry plains in Argentina, southern Brazil, and Uruguay.

How To Grow Moss Rose From Seed: Sow Moss Rose ground cover seed in starter trays or individual pots 6 - 8 weeks before end of frost season. Press the Moss Rose seeds into the soil but do not cover. The seeds need light to germinate. Transplant the Moss Rose seedlings into the garden 12 inches apart.
This plant does best in full sun—at least six hours per day—and needs direct sunlight in order to bloom, but other than that, it's not too picky about its growing conditions as long as it's dry.

The single biggest key to keeping Portulaca blooming all season long is proper water and sunlight. When planted in well draining soil and being watered properly, they should thrive as long the plants are getting at least 6 hours of sunlight.
Portulaca oleracea can be grown from seed or cuttings and is easy to grow.
