    I have to add my vote for portulaca as a go-anywhere,  survive anything 
companion plant.   Although the blossoms close when it's overcast and towards 
evening, they
are available in such an amazing range of colors...even a "broken color" pink 
and white and they don't take much fussing at all.   Mine even reseeded 
amazingly well, I'd find little seedlings all over.  I do keep them well in 
front of the rhizomes however.
