OTHER: The Fame Flower is a succulent flowering herb related to the Portulaca. It is grown both for its ornamental value & for its edible leaves. These plants also have traditional medicinal uses.
The fleshy leaves can be enjoyed raw or cooked. You can use them in the same ways you would use spinach leaves, such as … in salads, on sandwiches, green smoothies, soups, stews, & more. The seeds are also edible & are nutritious.
While the Fame Flower’s blooms are small, they are plentiful & really stand out on thin stalks held over the foliage, luring bees & butterflies to your garden. Then, get ready for the real show to begin! These plants are most popular for their ‘Jewels of Opar’ or in layman’s terms, their seed pods. Lol. Many consider them to be the headliner of this class act. The pods appear in shades of red with some purple, orange, & yellow tones thrown in. They are very popular for cut & dried arrangements.
The Fame Flower tolerates sun (its fave!), heat, & drought well, & is quite capable of growing in poor soils, preferring a sandy and/or well drained site. Although only hardy to Zone 8, the plants can be enjoyed as an annual in cooler zones, & will reseed to give you new baby plants in the following year.
