Portulaca oleracea

Purslane is a low growing succulent-like herb that is richly nutritious, in Vitamin E and has been a potherb valued for its medicinal properties throughout history. It is said to be a great muscle relaxant and valued for its high omega 3 fatty acid levels. The plant has thick roots which store water as do the fleshy stems, branches and leaves; thus making it quite drought tolerant. It does well in both rich and poor soils. It can be used in stirfries, soups, salads, and many Asian dishes. The seeds can stay viable for 40 years in the soil and up to 19 years in the packet. Plant thickly to encourage a more upright growth habit. Plant by spreading the seed over the soil surface and lightly watering them into the soil. They germinate better with overnight soaking prior to planting. Keep the bed moist until the plants are established. The plants mature very quickly and look quite attractive with their reddish stems.
