Hi Becky! I remembered your love for this non-stop bloomer when I was in TN and planted Moss rose a lot.

Now that I'm back in Phx, I forgot all about it Rolling my eyes. If you could give me some hints....

Are you keeping yours in pots or in the ground? I saw your sun exposure hints, now I just need to find out about how much you water them and I'm off!

Thanks for writing this!

Sheryl
In the end, only kindness matters.

Science is not the answer, it is the question.

Sheryl,

Sorry to be so tardy is replying.

I have it in pots on my balcony because I am living in an apartment now. In the ground, it will thrive and relaly takes over!
In pots they get a little bit of water every other day. In the ground they get about twice a week.
