This sprung up in an outdoor container this summer. The container previously had petunias and begonias. The flowers make me think geranium, or even hardy geranium but the leaves make me think otherwise. It looks like a single stem in the soil but it’s acting like a ground cover, cascading over the sides of the container. They seem to close up at night as well. Any thoughts are appreciated!

    I tend to disagree with the other poster saying its purslane. While the stem looks like it, the leaves are different– purslane tends to have more rounded leaves and the leaves in the photo have a more of a point. It almost looks like a variety of vinca.
