Talinum is a relative to another garden favorite, Portulaca, and displays the same kind of tough performance in poor, dry soils as its cousin. The foliage forms a mound of succulent foliage with very fine stems of dainty pink or red blooms that add a misty effect to the garden or in mixed container plantings. Produces round red seed pods that are just as attractive as the flowers! Native to southern regions of North America.Makes a breathtaking potted specimen plant. Wonderful for combination plantings. The perfect choice for beds and borders. Cut flowers make an interesting addition to floral arrangements.
