Living in a dry heat with high temperatures between 105 and 110 during the summer, purslane laughs in your face and thrives here in Phoenix, Arizona. Add some incredible, edible ornamental purslane to your garden this summer! A salsa with purslane recipe is included in the article.

The flowers or tips of limbs are black & shriveled. They have been potted about 4 months & were doing great, but for the last week they havent been blooming but a couple flowers. Its been hot, & I was trying to water everything every 2-3 days so is the problem to much water? They were beautiful & thriving, but now no flowers but the plant looks healthy...any help will be appreciated, thanks! Sighing!

sgirl, where do you live? Is the weather cooling off?

I Live in Phoenix and at a certain point when it's cooler at night and during the day the blooming slows down and they start a dormant track. This seems a bit early, but perhaps your evenings are cooling down too? Also, too much water can harm them, I've found.
