Closeup of bloom; flowers are small and delicate (not inconspicuous, but not showy like their Portulaca cousins.) The flowers are followed by ruby-red tiny seed pods that look like tiny jewels swaying above the foliage.
Jewel of Opar
This is a neat plant with pretty leaves that seeded itself in my yard. The blossom are very small. The red seed pods are about the size of a bee bee.
Talinum paniculatum growing in flower border in bloom. The fuzzy red color is the seed heads.
The terminal panicle with flowers and seeds.
Such sweet TINY blooms...nice to see standing erect over foliage.
Love the bright yellow-green coloring of this plant.
