We had a frost warning last night so I brought in my two baskets of purslane.

I also have some in the ground and I left it as I want to see if it re-seeds.

Thanks for starting this Cubit Becky as I was not familiar with purslane and now it's one of my favorites. Thumbs up

Hurray! It's not the most popular plant but I love it. It makes me happy to see the blooms begin anew every morning...just like me!

Two of the Rio kinds of purslanes I have. Actually, the white one was supposed to be apricot color...good thing I also like white! I also have one yellow. I have done cuttings, which are probably rooted by now.

Same plants...I set the three pots together. It's so nice to walk outside once the blooms open up in the morning and see these blooming away. I have a few Golden Purslane (from seed) in the pots also, but they're not blooming yet...and are mostly there for the great flavor of the leaves, anyway.

Yes, the smaller butterflies go to them for nectar also. I have more plants from the cuttings I did, but they are small plants.

I love that you can snip purslane off and stick it in the ground and it grows!

Oh good....I forgot! Whistling I love snipping off different colors and then making a new basket so there are all kinds of blooms. My first year of Purslane was in '2000 and the bees loved them! I had several "mutations" with 3 pink petals, two white. And one that had a petal that was half white and half pink!

Soon there will be a purslane flower for us to add to our Microbadges. I already sent it to Dave but he is busy farming and adding them to the system.

I just love this long shot... Purslanes are bee magnet, each flower hosts 3-4 bees at a time...
