This listing features our beautiful rooted Portulaca molokiniensis. It is an upright growing succulent that grows basal branches to form a small shrub up to 12 inches (30 cm) tall. The stems are round and corky, bearing round grey-green succulent leaves that are arranged neatly in 4 distinct rows towards the branch tips. Portulaca molokiniensis produces clusters of tiny lemon yellow cup-shaped flowers at the ends of leafless stems that rise above the foliage. All of the plants will be shipped bare root.
