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.

Comments about 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!

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.
