Portulaca from cuttings (say what?)
My 6-year old son and I picked up a clearance, slightly tired P. grandiflora (moss rose) plant at Lowe's for all of a quarter (he knows mom likes the flowers). I, on the other hand, look at this plant and see the potential for a father-son project involving lots and lots of cuttings. Before we get started, I was wondering if anyone has bothered to try to propogate moss rose from cuttings? It seems like it should be simple, but I seem to get burned by that perception a lot!
Also, I know this plant is always called an annual, but does anyone know if it is really a tender perennial? In general, what happens to rooted cuttings of annual plants through the winter months? Seems like they'd be pretty confused, at best!
