I picked this one up this spring
It is not in the database yet so I will have to create a space.
It is called 'Samba pink bicolor'

I like the little white star in the center , I think it is the stigma.
It does not seem to produce seeds so I will try to overwinter a piece in the house.
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.

Oh, that is BEAUTIFUL! I hope you're able to overwinter the plant as I'm afraid the seeds won't come true. Stunning! Lovey dubby

It has a nice sour taste. Sure hope it is edible cause I've been sharing it.

It should be edible. That's said to be a variety of Portulaca oleracea, which is edible.

People report eating other Portulacas besides oleracea (purslane) often, so it doesn't seem like the others are any less edible than purslane. The plant of this discussion looks like a P. grandiflora.

* The edible known as purslane is P. oleracea, and has flat, fat foliage, small yellow flowers with 5 petals. There are no cultivars or hybrids.
* Those with foliage like 'juicy pine needles' are P. grandiflora, variously colored, multi-petaled flowers. (moss roses, many cultivars.)
* The one with foliage that looks like purslane, sold in stores with the annuals with variously colored flowers that are much larger than purslane, with usually 5 petals but sometimes more, is P. umbraticola. (sold as moss roses also, or ornamental purslane, many cultivars.)

My chipmunks think that they are ALL edible!
I've had to give up trying to grow them because the chippies eat them until they are completely gone. There's no point spending money on chipmunk candy!

I love those close-up images, Cinda & Clint. Lovey dubby
