I didn't have to look far to find a sample. It is always present in my garden. Here are pictures of one of the most successful, ubiquitous plants in the world. http://www.durgan.org/ShortURL/?EYYPS 20 July 2008 Purslane, Portulaca oleracea L Other Names: Portulaca, Pursley, Pusley, Pussley, Wild portulaca. This plant is an annual, reproducing only by seed, and the plant has enough nutrients in a small piece broken off that seeds can be produced. It is pleasant to eat raw, and is a nice addition to a salad, amongst other cookery uses. This weed is ubiquitious, and seldom is a garden without this useful weed.
