I found this 6 pack at the hardware store today. There was no tag to identify it and it was the only one they had. So, since it was on the discount table for .99cents...I had to buy it. It looks like a tiny succulent that would possibly work as a ground cover or in a basket.

Can anyone tell me what it is?

Agree with Hetty, some type of sedum. Check this link and compare the photos of the various sedums; I do find the photo of sedum sexangulare a bit similar to your plant.

Thank you! It does look like it is a form of Sedum sexangulare. That is close enough to discover how to take care of it.

It could also be Sedum pallidum. I only say that because I have sedum pallidum and it really looks like that. A little tiny thing. Turns blue-ish purple in bright sun. http://www.sedumphotos.net/v/sedum-pqr/Sedum+pallidum+bithyn...

Thanks Kate. I hope it is sedum pallidum. A bluish purple would look fantastic!
