Purslane, Golden: Portulaca oleracea: Annual: (that readily self-seeds). This is an incredibly delicious plant that will grow prolifically if you let it. Thus, best grown in containers, raised beds, or bordered areas. The Plants are upright with redish stems and large, smooth, succulent, golden-green leaves. The yellow flowers open singly at the center of the leaf cluster for only a few hours on sunny mornings. Purslane is great for salads- (Delicious in Greek Salad!) It is also a lovely addition to soups and stews. It can be used very similarly to spinach- but has more vitamin C than spinach, and is very rich in antioxidants. Purslane’s leaves can be used to treat insect or snake bites on the skin, boils, sores, and pain from bee stings. Transplant 5” apart. It will regenerate after cutting.
