PORTULACACEAE, The Purslane family

A lovely walk at Catherine Creek – these pale bitterroot were blooming in rocky crevices and on outcroppings near the natural stone bridge. A few were much darker – almost the color of autumn crocus.

There are many cultivated varieties that can be grown in gardens. They especially like a deep narrow pot with a well-draining soil mix.


About Mulysa

I love my work as a landscape designer and artist. When I'm not planning homesteads or working in the studio, you'll find me hiking, photographing, gardening, baking, cooking vegetarian meals with friends, reading and working on sustainability issues...with my baby on my hip in Portland, Oregon.
