This plant has been growing on and around the rocks on an untended area of our property since we moved here almost 11 years ago, it seems to survive with little water or care, does anyone know what it is???

Hi Margaret. That is a lovely sedum you have. Not sure which one it is though. Can you get us a photo of the leaves?

I'll take a look today and see if I can get a macro of the leaves. The photo I posted is the only one I have of it. It seems to spread quite readily over the rocks, so I guess that it wouldn't be too good for the sedum rock garden. What do you think?

Yes, sorry Lynn I forgot to post it. *Blush*

It is a small plant, the stems and leaves combined are not much larger than a pen.

I'd need to see it once it grows out more, but it reminds me of S. acre.

Could my plant be Sedum Acre L, as suggested by Magga. I didn't resize this photo like I usually do and I cropped an area where you can see the leaves better. Hope it has a name!! Hurray!

I can see just a very small part of the leaves in the bottom left corner that looks like it might be S. acre var. 'Lanconicum'.
But it would be best to see it before it blooms.
