how big are purslane leaves?

merrybookwyrmJuly 1, 2011

There is a volunteer plant growing that I'm trying to identify. Had thought it might be purslane, but the leaves are too small? Know this isn't much to go on.

Depends upon the variety. The "golden" purslane I grow in the veggie garden is larger leafed than the common "weed" purslane.

my purslane, depending on how much water it gets, has leaves about 1/4 inch to 3/4 inch leaves. I think it varies greatly depending on where it grows. Can't add a picture?

Thank you, FataMorgana and mcfaroff.

No picture, don't have a working camera (a sore subject).

I'll keep looking...
