'N3 'Bretta Perkins'
Talinum species are a great small accent for dry areas in the sun. A small succulent native to granite outcrops. This species is very tolerant of extreme drought and can temporarily get submerged as long as the soils drains quickly. Species mengesii has flowers twice the size as species teretifolium, both prefer full sun and well drained soils. This plant has cylindrical succulent leaves. It matures to a height of 8-12" and colonizes well over time. It has beautiful fuchsia colored flowers starting in June lasting through early Summer in to Fall. It reproduces mostly from bublets. Colony easily doubles in size each year.
We are interested in any plants or bublets from your population. Any odd colors or flower shapes are of great interest.
