Details

10-12" tall x 15-18" wide (seed propagated). Originally brought into cultivation by New Mexico landscaper, nurserywoman and author Judith Phillips, this selection of the species is remarkable for its vigor and its fabulously showy display of quarter-sized rose-violet flowers. It thrives in full sun growing on poor sandy/rocky soils. Blooming starts in early summer and continues through early fall. The flowers open in the afternoon, so it's always a treat to come home in later afternoon to clouds of its intensely colored flowers dancing in the breeze.

Planting Guides

Planting Tips for Phemeranthus calycinum (Talinum) Judith's Favorite

These plants won’t begin to grow until warm summer weather has arrived. The long thin string-like roots are brittle and do not like to be disturbed when transplanting, so don’t scratch out the root ball. When transplanting while it is still cold, water the plant thoroughly only once. Continued watering during cold weather will rot the roots. Don’t start to water regularly until the weather warms and the plants begin to grow.

    This plant doesn't look like much when you get it. However, it does grow into a beautiful plant and the flowers are amazing when they bloom. it is now May 4, 2015 and I still haven't seen any new growth for the second season. I am hopeful to see something soon, I hope.

      This little plant doesn't look like much at first, but it was in bloom and a darling little plant for most of the summer. I bought only one and it would look even better with a bunch of them grouped together. Don't pass up this. You might think it's a wimpy little plant but it is a delight.

        This is a very pretty plant that blooms all summer long. It's now April 1st of the second year, and it hasn't reappeared yet, but I'm hoping it will.

        Comments about High Country Gardens Phemeranthus calycinum (Talinum) Judith's Favorite:

        Planted this in a terrible spot, hellstrip rockgarden between a south-facing stucco wall and a sidewalk that bhrns up some of the toughest plants, amazing blooms all summer and fall. Hot pink that burns like fire waiting by the front door when I get off work. Definately deserves more use!

        USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

        To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

        • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
        • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
