Macro Monday - Red Portulaca

Portulaca is a vigorous plant.  By summer's end it will be quite large and hang over the edge of the pot.  The succulent leaves help it stand up to our hot dry summers.  They come in a variety of colors, this one is  "Tequila Cherry".

Portulaca is one of those hardy little plants that most of us need to plant more of for its heat tolerance. No hardship as it comes in such delicious colors like this one.
