Landskap penutup bumi( Portulaca Grandiflora)

Portulaca grandiflora merupakan sejenis pokok penutup bumi dan lebih dikenali sebagai seri pagi. Ia memerlukan cahaya matahari secukupnya supaya ia kembang mekar di waktu pagi. Ia akan menguncup di waktu petang.
Portulaca grandiflora (Moss-rose Purslane or Moss-rose), is a flowering plant in the family Portulacaceae, native to Argentina, southern Brazil, and Uruguay.[1][2]
It is also seen in the South Asia and widely spread in most of the cities with old XVIII-XIX century architecture in the Balkans. In Bangladesh, it is called "Time Fuul", meaning "Time Flower", because the flower has a specific time to bloom.
It is a small, but fast-growing annual plant growing to 30 cm tall, though usually less. However if it is cultivated properly it can easily reach this height. The leaves are thick and fleshy, up to 2.5 cm long, arranged alternately or in small clusters. The flowers are 2.5–3 cm diameter with five petals, variably red, orange, pink, white, and yellow.[1] Numerous cultivars have been selected for double flowers with additional petals, and for variation in flower color.[1]
