Good one. May I know the size of the flowers. Were these very close to the beach on sands or elsewhere near the backwaters?


Flowers were approx. 2 to 3 cm in size. I had spotted this plant on the beach on sand as well as near the backwater. The shared here was photographed close to back water.

Please base id on images -642 & -644.

Could be Sesuvium portulacastrum Aiozaceae. A common mangrove associate with succulent leaves. Identification can be conclusive if images of flowers are available.

Please ID this succulent that grows along brackish water coast. Photo was taken in Sri Lanka in Dec 2011.


Looks like Sesuvium species (S.portulacastrum).


May be Portulaca oleracea of Portulacaceae. Commonly called pig weed, ‘Kozhuppa’ in Malayalam & ‘Paruppu keerai’ in Tamil.


efi pages:  Sesuvium portulacastrum & Portulaca oleracea


It is not Portulaca oleracea as per images and details herein.

Also does not match with any species as per comparative images at Sesuvium
But I am doubtful.

Other recipients:
It has a look of Sesuvium to me regards Radha
It has a look of Sesuvium to me

Yes, appears to be Sesuvium portulacastrum as per comparative images and details at Sesuvium and as per GBIF image
