The small pink flowers.

   This member of the Portulacaceae family was given this name by Joseph Gaertner in 1791. Found in the central part of America, growing in well-drained soil with some water and lots of sun. The stem will reach for one meter, the flowers are pink to yellowish. I got some seeds from Corbas, France in 2002, but haven't had that much success. Maarten van Thiel could - of course.

The small seeds. The grit it five millimetres.
