I’ve had these before but can’t remember the name. A neighbor is trying to identify them. I think they’re called some kind of rose but they aren’t roses. They will easily root from dropped leaves.

    Likely, Portulaca umbraticola, Wingpod Purslane.

    Forgive me. I meant to say “Moss Rose”. Please disregard my previous reply!

    I’ve heard them referred to as “Desert Rose”.
