Each bloom is open all day long. At night they all close up. I am not sure if the bloom lasts only one day or is just open during the day. It doesn't matter to me. I am just glad I bought two small pots early this summer....and it is still going strong.
Hot pink and bright yellow...it just shouts HELLO!
I planted the two small plants in the front garden along the sidewalk. It filled in the open spaces. The only other plants in that garden spot at some variegated Acorus....echoing that yellow. Next year? Hope I can find some more of this baby....
There are two other Portulaca Fairy Tale Series-- 'Snow White' which is .....white. (duh!) It has the same pom-pom center and outer petals...they are all white. 'Sleeping Beauty' is yellow...all yellow. Again, same shape bloom, all yellow. I think I hit a homerun with 'Cinderella'. Do you have some homerun plants from this summer?
