Portulaca oleracea / Suberihiyu スベリヒユ


Portulaca oleracea is a fleshy annual herb in sunny locations, with stems tingeing red-purple and crawling on the ground to spread. The 1-2.5cm long leaves are spatulate, with bases cuneate. Yellow flowers measure 6-8mm in diameter; bright light works as an opener, and vice versa. Petals are generally five and sepals two. Fruit ruptures sideways as it ripens to disperse seeds. Bloom time: July-September.
