Talinum 'Zoe'

Talinum 'Zoe', an ideal trough inhabitant.  It's a
hybrid between Talinum okanoganense and T. spinescens, both of
which are found in Washington to British Columbia (the latter species
is also found in northeast Oregon).  In the photo above, taken early in
the day, the flowers are just beginning to open.  Like most
Portulacaceae, the flowers open in sun or bright light only.

This fine, hardy succulent flowers throughout the summer. It looks
terrific growing alongside one of it's parents, the dwarf, white-flowered
Talinum okanoganense.  Beware of plants in cultivation or seed
exchanges labeled as T. spinescens, as most often a taller weedy
imposter is at large, usually Talinum teretifolium from eastern
United States.
