Purslane

Purslane

What is Purslane?

Purslane is an annual weed that sprouts in early summer and dies in the fall. Its distinctive red stems make it easy to identify.
 

Why do you have purslane?

Purslane sprouts in bare areas especially along the edges of the lawn. Sometimes these bare areas are caused by traffic (vehicles) or string trimmers that have scalped the grass.
 

What can you do about purslane?

For starters, you can pull it out really easily. If you haven’t sprayed your lawn with chemicals and are a little adventurous you might even eat it!  You can add it to your salad or sauté it. (Tastes best if picked in the morning or evening) If you don’t want to pull it, it can be spot treated with some chemicals, or you can just wait for Mother Nature to take care of it naturally this fall.
