Mystery plant

shear_stupidity(9B)February 3, 2013

I don't know if I found this in the yard, or in a flowerbed, or where I got it. I know it flowered once last year, but can't remember the color of the flowers. (They were very small) Any ideas?

Me! Me! Let me venture a guess.

Is this a Portulaca plant?

Ceth, it very well may be! And probably is. LOL! Thanks!

There are sedums/stonecrops with that foliage too; you may need to see the flowers to tell whether it's a portulaca or a stonecrop.

The poor thing needs more sunlight.

It will take over places. I have it and it dies back to the ground but comes back and blooms yellow.Sedum rupestre

This is how the same plant looks now that it's getting more sunlight. :)
