This plant has fat, flat leaves & single blooms, like P. umbraticola.

This looks like purslane to me. Becky is so much better at identifying the difference between portulaca and purslane than I though.

TY. They're all Portulacas. Purslane (Portulaca oleracea) only has small yellow flowers, and a more oval-shaped leaf. The ornamental ones (with flat leaves) are P. umbraticola.
