9 O'clock Flowers or Moss Rose

I have never noticed such a beautiful little flowers planted by my mum in the front yard. She called these flowers are "9 o'clock flowers" as they are normally bloom from 9.00 in the morning until 3.00 in the afternoon. She got them from her one of her mahjong friends. Usually the Moss Roses are very small , it's the first time I saw the widely bloomed ones. I will definitely going to take some seedlings to plant at my house once I have got my pots and black soil ready.

  3. The best part of this plant is you actually can propagate it with just a stem... just clip it and you are good to go!!!!!!!!!
    I have a question about crossing them for different breeds????
