Our neighbor is growing these but doesn't know what they're called. She mentioned something about "lives forever" or "lasts forever". Mrs repotted them for her.

Thank you @tofitropic. I came up with Sedum purpureum, ID'd as "Live Forever" but the description mentions coarsely-toothed leaves and these are smooth: http://www.bio.brandeis.edu/fi...

I also found Hylotelephium telephium which mentioned โ€œoften with coarse teethโ€ on the leaves. http://www.friendsofthewildflo...

We were able to get pictures of flowers which may help in getting an accurate identification. The leaves are clearly smooth-edged.

Looks like sedum, Neon
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.

@crawgarden, I couldn't find that one in the database, Rj.

Just a guess looking at the color

Neon is in the database. Stonecrop (Hylotelephium spectabile 'Neon')

However your plant doesn't have the intensity of pink.

I'd say your plant was S. Brilliant.

Probably a better choice, I have noticed on my sedum that the intensity of the flower seems dependent on the amount of sun the plant gets.

@kniphofia, Sue, I'm inclined to think it's S. Brilliant based on the color, though Neon is close. My thanks to everyone for their suggestions and links. Thumbs up

Thanks Rj. My understanding is that these particular plants are grown in a variety of lighting conditions.

Does the plant in question have pairs of opposite leaves?

From the pictures above I would say "yes".

That does not fit with Hylotelephium spectabile. Is this plant supposed to be hardy, or not?

I have no idea. The plants were a gift from a neighbor. I assume they are hardy since the neighbor's plants return every year. You'll have to argue the identity with the people that identified it. I'm no expert, which is why I asked for an ID to start with.

I never argue with anyone, just a clinical discussion of the plants' features. Leaf arrangement is a critical element of securing an ID.

I'm quite sure of that. I can furnish more detailed pictures if needed. I assumed by the wording that your question https://garden.org/thread/view... was directed at me. My apologies if I was in error.
