Thanks, Madhuri ji.

Some extracts from Wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moss_rose

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. In Bangladesh, it is called "Time Fuul". "Time Fuul" means "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. 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]

It is widely grown in temperate climates as an ornamental plant for annual bedding or as a container plant. It requires ample sunlight and well-drained soils.

Numerous cultivars have been selected for double flowers with additional petals, and for variation in flower color.[1]

According to the Language of Flowers, presenting someone with the Moss-rose is a confession of love.
