If you are talking about this plant, it is an annual.

I agree! But you can collect the seeds to sow in the spring.

Well, since some people consider it a weed, I'm assuming that it will self-seed freely. And, Cole, I forgot to mention that if you click on the name in that photo, it will take you to our Plant Database entry where you'll find more information on this plant. Welcome Welcome! to ATP; take some time to look around! Smiling

Welcome! Cole.
Purslane self sows here in the Willamette Valley, OR. It also self sowed where we lived in Eastern WA, high desert.
I like to eat it in salads.

Same here. Some places I yank it, others I encourage it. Tasty.
