I love the way purslane adapts to baskets, pots, containers of all kinds.
In this photo I have Purslane in the top basket with Portulaca (Moss Rose) in the bottom two.

Show us yours!

Purslane is the best part of summer!

Blurry photo but you get the idea! By the end of summer this plant was hanging to the ground.

This hanging basket was a mixture of Purslane plugs from several plants. Each morning I would be surprised with the color scheme!

A nursery went out of business several years ago and I bought some of these stake baskets at 75% off. DEAL!

I posted this in the Colors of Purslane thread but wanted to add it here too.
I planted it in the evening so I'll have to get a good morning photo soon.

Nice. Here we have the big box places (which I won't call nurseries) and a small number of real nurseries that seem to survive the years. Other than those, all the real nurseries that decide to locate in the general area close their doors eventually. Not a good area for real real nurseries!

Linda, it's been so hot (110 to 115 lately) that my joy of gardening is quite limited.

The ones I planted in the hanging basket is doing great though. Small blooms...not like the larger ones I love so much.

I purchased a purslane plant this past summer and not knowing much about it's growth habit, planted it in the flowerbed..it was beautiful but become a bit invasive. I will only plant it in a pot/patio container the next time. Mine was yellow and since we had such a hot summer of many days 90-103 days, it did well. I read somewhere on some blog or website or cubit to only plant it in a pot/container or hanging basket. Would love to get another color next year.

If the flowers were small yellow blooms, that one seems to be more invasive than others. They do great in hanging baskets and pots. And sometimes surprise you and come back the following year!

I have wild purslane (yellow flower) and what I think is wild portulaca (redish/pink flower) that just pops up where ever. Did a hanging basket with both as well as a store bought purslane.

Ginger, very pretty! Looks like wild purslane to me too. I have a pot of the wild redish-pinkish too! Be sure to show us photos when yours bloom.

Pippi,
My website is on cubits actually! I used to have a massive one that was so outdated and I never got around to creating another one when cubits was formed.

I put this combo succulent pot together a couple weeks ago, and added more purslane cuttings last weekend. (Portulaca umbraticola.)
Thumb of 2016-08-05/purpleinopp/856220

I'm going to hang this one in GH for winter. I hope it gets enough light to keep blooming. The ones in the house don't usually last past the end of the year. Can't wait to find out!

Very pretty!

I put one inside the house and it bloomed until January and then there just wasn't enough heat/sun to help it. But I cared for it and when it got warm planted it outdoors in the ground and it took off for that summer. I moved that fall so never knew what happened.
