Looks like Portulaca, Moss Rose.

Looks like pinweed, perhaps Lechea tenuifolia. Unless the leaves are fleshy/succulent.

Hmmm...no fragrance...does not look like pinweed, the leaves appear to be fleshy but on the limp side if that makes sense. I did have a portulaca last year in a different bed and I just looked at the pix of it, and the leaves look the same except plumper. Maybe they will plump out as the weather warms? Guess I will leave it be for a while and see what happens. No other plant ANYWHERE near that looks like it, so thats why I think not weed.

Maybe some kind of Delosperma? Should make small daisy-like flower soon if it is.

Sedum?

I call Delosperma "Iceplant" and yes, I have some of that in the yard, too, but all their leaves are plump....To me it looks more like the portulaca than the iceplant, but I guess time will tell. I will go try to get a closer up of the plant


 o
closer look

I agree it looks like Delosperma....but looking at the other 5 or 6 places I have that plant, It does not look the same .....unless this one is a baby in a different stage?


 o
it's a keeper.

yeah that looks like some kind of
ground cover plant.


 o
new growth

I think it's going to be Toad flax, like Nuttallanthus canadensis.
