I have not grown portulaca before. Worried that rains will cause the plants to wither and die.

I would advise moving the hanging baskets to a protected area and water accordingly. Heavy rains and winds can easily damage the plants. You can place them back when the weather improves.

There is lots of summer yet, so best to keep the plants protected.
