Does ALL purseline produce flowers? I've got it springing up in several pots but no flowers...

If you're asking about purslane then yes, they all do. Which ones do you have and how long have you had them?

Hi Lizzyh23, Welcome!

Yes, Portulaca (Purslane): https://garden.org/plants/sear... do produce blooms ... some types have more attractive blooms than others. I'm not sure why you aren't seeing flowers but maybe giving it more direct sun might help flowers to form. Hopefully others will be along with suggestions soon.

We have Purslane (Portulaca oleracea) that grows here in Flroida and I consider it a weed, the flowers are not very pretty in my opinion and although the stems, leaves and seeds are said to be edible, I've never tried them. Smiling

Purslane- new I had spelling off! I have some that flowers beautifully but then there is some that is popping up in pots in the back yard and it takes over the pots but doesn't bloom flowers.
So I wondered did it have an imposter!

It may be P. umbraticola. If so, look for blooms between 9-11 AM, open longer on cloudy days.

So... I tried some of the 'weeds' that I pulled from my garden. They were, honestly, pretty good. Slightly citrusy. that said, they are 'weeds' in my head and I can't quite get around that to plant them on purpose.
