This is my unknown sedum which I purchased eight or nine years ago. I bought three or four different ones but didn't keep track of which name went where back then. I do know though that there was one label that said Sedum kamchaticum or something similar. I think mine looks like the one in Paul's photo. I guess my question would be, what others are there that are so similar they could be mistaken for each other?

It looks much like a euphorbia to me, but not one I have grown.

It's unquestionably a sedum, and I'd say it's Sedum aizoon:

...but now called Phedimus aizoon, apparently.
