Portulac (Portulaca oleracea) – a beautiful flower that has no pests

I was very surprised when I came from vacation. On my terrace, the flowers are still beautifully flowering although the weather has cooled down a bit. I finally found out the name of the flower that has been making me happy all summer. Portulac is widespread in warm tropical and subtropical places, where about one hundred species are known. The ancestors of the large-flowered purtolac, mostly raised for ornamental purposes, originate in Brazil and Argentina. It is an ideal plant for both the garden and the balcony, as its leaves are fleshy and full of water, so it can withstand both heat and drought. The plant thrives best in the sunny position, because it is very modest, but also no problems with fertilization. Its specialty is that it is completely healthy, free of diseases and pests.
