Hi kinji5.

It does look to be a sedum. It will help when we can see what the blooms look like.
Here are some possibilities:
Pork and Beans (Sedum rubrotinctum)

There is also a rounder leaved of S. morganianum. The ones showing in this entry are the longer, flat leaved type.
Burro's Tail (Sedum morganianum)

Sedum burrito with rounded leaves.
Sedum (Sedum burrito)

Hope this helps you. : )

I was going to ask for help on a plant i just purchased,but it seems to look just like the one above.

It was labeled Donkey tail 'Burrito'/sedum hybrid. I know the label probably gave me an id.But my question is what is a sedum hybrid? This is the first sedum i have ever had and not exactly sure what they are or how to care for it.

Thanks for any advice!!!

A green thumb comes only as a result of the mistakes you make while learning to see things from the plants point of view!!

Welcome!
Hi Jelinda. Sure enough, you have a Sedum Burrito. Sedum (Sedum burrito)
They are awesome plants that are very easy to care for. Just give it fast draining potting mix, water when soil dries, give it bright light/morning sun. The sun part would also depend on what your area is like in the summer. They can't handle freezing weather, so would need to be brought indoors for the winter.
