|I don't mind this weed so much. Its succulent bright-green foliage and red stems are actually quite attractive, and it pulls up easily. But it sure does seed itself around! Used as a salad green. Found mainly in the side garden and vegetable garden.
This is a weed in our garden

|Laura Stifel||Mar 30, 2005||Any possibility of getting a few seeds of Portulaca Oleracea? I want to consume some, but also want to spread it about for the chicks I'm raising?
I'll pay postage...?|
I haven't collected seed for this - didn't realize anyone would want it. It's quite abundant in our garden... It hasn't even emerged for the year yet, and won't bloom for some time, so I won't be of much help. Good luck finding some.
|Lavina||Jun 10, 2005||Can I break off limbs from this plant and transplant them?
Thanks your picture is great.|
I'm not sure how well it would root from cuttings. It's not the kind of plant that roots naturally where it touches the ground, but it may do so when forced. Worth a try.
|neil||Jul 29, 2011||I have to say, the succulents are such humble-looking weeds, I don't pull them up! P.S. Lavina, I had a cutting root in water. how 'bout you try that?
