Could be... Burro's Tail (Sedum morganianum)

Or... Jelly Bean (Sedum rubrotinctum)

But i'm leaning towards the Burro Tail.

Sure they were growing wild? Blinking Or maybe your friend or someone else had a pot of them at one time, and they "escaped"? Or broke off? I can't imagine they'd be growing "wild".

Or maybe my ID is wrong? Hopefully someone else will chime in! Crossing Fingers!

She just bought a new house that an older gentleman had previously lived in! I was helping her identify some plants because the flower beds and parts of the yard had grown crazy! I was walking along her yard and half of it is COVERED in these! I did not see any of these in any of the flower beds or any of the flower pots that had been left. That is why I was so surprised! Haha.

Most Sedums are quite hardy. Blooms would help with ID.

Sounds wonderful, that wouldn't need to be mowed!
