I need some help please. I bought some purslane to feed my pet squirrels and when I looked it up, it had yellow flowers. The stuff I bought has reddish pink flowers. Is this the same stuff or did I get the wrong thing? The tag says purslane (portulaca) and it has a picture of yellow and the reddish pink flowers.

Purslane actually comes in a variety of colors, which can range from white, pink and rose to shades of yellow and orange. There are even lavender varieties as well as multi-colored types. Typically, wild purslane (which is commonly considered a weed) has yellow blooms while the other types of purslane are nursery grown types that are available in numerous colors.
