"Moss Rose is easy to grow. Grow Moss Rose plants in full sun. Plants prefer average to poor soils. They prefer loose, sandy or loam soil. A well draining composition is important.
Moss Rose is drought and heart tolerant. In the flower garden, watering is seldom needed. If growing in containers or hanging pots, allow the soil to dry between watering. Add a general purpose, high nitrogen fertilizer when first planting, to help them to get a good start. Add a high Phosphorous fertilizer just before blooming. No other fertilizer applications should be needed for the season.
Moss Rose produce tough, long lasting, rose-like blooms, in early summer. Pinch or deadhead spent flowers to promote more blooms.
Prune plants to create a fuller, neater appearance. Provide plenty of air circulation through the plant to help avoid fungal disease.
Plants are annuals that are very susceptible to frost. Cover them up whenever cold temperature"
