This is an annual that seems to grow well outside of the usual containers you may see it in. It is Moss Rose, a type of purslane, that reseeds every year. Some years are more prolific. Not considered a great pest to yards. Loves hot days, probably introduced via wind as i have seen it in all parts of the county and especially in lawns that are more sparse.
