The Pasir Panjang Road entrance of HortPark was replanted with this beautiful bed of single-petaled Japanese Rose from the Portulacaceae Family. It is a pity the colourful flowers only open at certain times of the day and close sometime after noon.

My mum used to grow them when I was younger and I can still remember how she potted them from cuttings. A link on the groundcover is shown below:
