    purslane, make sure you step on it to break the coating before spraying with weed control.

    I don't understand how this is a weed though? We used to grow this stuff in a horticulture class I was in back in High School and sell the plants. Although, there must be different varieties, as the ones we grew had pretty flowers and the stuff i see growing on the ground doesn't.

    I think you are confusing the purslane plant with the Jade Plant, abit similar but two different plants.

    Must have been the Horticulture teacher that was confused then, because that class is the only thing I remember this plant from. It was always breaking off real easy whenever you bumped it.
