It looks like purslane (Portulaca oleracea) to me, or else another species of plant in the Portulaca genus. Plants in this genus are known as Moss Rose, and it would be normal to find them in a store like The Home Depot. They may also have other colors of flowers.

    Purslane is the right answer.

Looks like it could be some sort of Delosperma, or Ice plant. Or even some sort of sedum. Of course you could always go back to HD and see if they still have the plants and find out for sure.


Your plant on the top is a Red apple ice plant
