Its funny how plants from your childhood keeps popping up. My granny and aunt use to grow this annual on their varanda in Belize. I use to love them then as now and I always find room for some of these miniture rose-like flowers. They are also known as Moss Rose. They come in many colours from white through yellow to red. They are succulent and don't mind being dry, but needs good well drained soil and watering to flower well. Also deadheading or they stop flowering for a period.
