Portulaca oleracea

Portulaca oleracea
Common name purslane
Family portulacaceae
Life cycle annual
Flowers yellow
Size 4"
Light sun

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
