My mother-in-law gave me this plant. She had it in a can and I trasplanted it to a large pot and it has grown like a weed. It is a pretty green and has lovely leaves but I fear it is a weed. It has sprouted some possible hope of flowers in the last week. Any ideas of what it is? The small sprouts behind it are Texas Bluebonnets.

Some type of sedum
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

I've never heard anyone call Sedums a weed. Much beloved by gardeners & critters.

The less I interfere, the more balance mother nature provides.
