This plant I collected in Apulien (Puglia, South Italy), last year. Now
it is glowing in my house. I looked in my Apulien-collection and found
the Fotos 100_9494-k and 100_9486-k. The other three with prefix Apulien
are from my hause, brought from Apulien.

Are these Portulaca. A don't have a foto of the flower from front.

TIA
Nalini

The first three photographs perhaps belong to Portulaca grandiflora. The fourth in circular bed has Portulaca in the upper half and Aptenia cordifolia (with broader leaves) in lower half.

Thanks Prof. Singh ji, for your prompt reply. Now I shall wait to see the flowers of Portulaca here in my house.
I have also brought a cutting of the second plant in the circular bed Aptenia cordifolia and is doing well here in Ritterhude. Does not have flowers yet. Flowers from Apulien in a separate mail. Is 100_9494-k also Purtulaca grandiflora?
Regards
Nalini
