Name this plant

Can someone please tell me what this plant is . The flowers open up wide in direct sunlight and the whole plant perks up, when the sun goes down the flowers close up.

Thankyou missingtheobvious . I was thinking it might be portulaca but I've never seen it planted in a planter or so lush . The stem are about a foot long . I had planted some years ago but they only grew to be about 6 inches.
Thankyou for your response :)
