Summer purslane. Unlike winter purslane, which is hardy, summer purslane is half hardy. It is a low growing plant which produces slightly succulent leaves that are used in salads. The green-leaved variety has better flavour while the yellow-leaved variety is more decorative. The stems and fleshy leaves are generally cooked but are sometimes used in salads. Can also be pickled.
