When I picked this up it did not have a name but said hardy to zone 6.

Do you think this is hardy. It is the plant with the red blooms I am questioning. I know the other two pots are tender sucs.

Cinta, it is very very hardy and it's Purslane. It likes to spread so you might want to repot it. Whistling

Did you mean will it freeze if outside in winter? I pretty much use purslane as annuals here. I'm down here in Texas, but due to the higher altitude in these hills, we get pretty cold compared to nearby San Antonio. Last winter was pretty mild, but it did get down to 27° once even so.

Yes Linda I was considering putting it in my cactus garden if it was hardy. I guess not for my climate.

Thank you.

We have heavy frosts and some freezes in January here so Purslane would not survive. It is a hot weather plant. However, some of mine reseeded from the previous summer so that was a great surprise!
