Yesterday i went to some nurseries. Surprisingly found 2 purslane with variegated leaves. One with cream edge and one with cream center. Flower color are the same.

I though the cream center leaf one is a mutant or chimera of the cream edge leaf. (I have observed that on my cream edge leaf impatient that produce branch with cream center leaf).

Searching the internet the one which have cream edge maybe cultivar "Hana Misteria". The name suggest that the cultivar maybe came from Japan. Not very new cultivar actually. So happy it find its way to my country, and sure it will spread to another countty too Smiling

I imagine the variegated varieties are edible, too?...

Wow love that cream edge. I haven't seen that in southeast Texas. I'll have to look online. Beautiful.
