Can you identify this plant?

It is growing in largish patches, on and around rock

The ground is neglected pasture/heathland in the process of being restored

It seems to spread via the creeping leaves and is quite tolerant of wet ground

In SW Ireland

Any ideas?

The closest i have got is Purple Saxifrage, only the leaves are wrong

Sedum leaves are fleshy aren't they?

These leaves are more reminiscent of cress

The leaves look like some relative of purslane, but I've never seen it in flower. It's very pretty though. :iconbiggrin:

nice to know. That would not be a plant I have ever come across in the wild, will have to go to the bog and see if there are some near me, I have seen a few things up there I was not familiar with
