Thanks, Kt.

Jean & Eric, you're both right it's Sedum, 'Voodoo'.
A ground hugging plant w/tiny rosettes that look much brighter in sunlight.

Well seen...I dug up a sedum from the wild part of the yard 2 yrs ago and just love it...It seems to end up falling apart n the middle so I'm going to try cutting it back after it gets about 12 inches...I've heard that when you do that to (anything they tend to bush more and not flop open)Don't know for sure..but since I know it'll come back it'll be worht a try!...Oh, I nearly forgot-Nice pics!

Thanks juanital and konrad.

Here's another pic I snapped today:
Stonecrop, 'Dragon's Blood Tricolor':

Well, this photo doesn't do justice to the plant. The colors are actually more intense. You have to get down on your hands and knees to appreciate the tiny quarter-inch rosettes.
