Hey guys, I found the cutest tiny succulents at a local garden centre. Problem is, they didn't have tags and the cashier didn't know what they were called. Can anyone ID these for me?

They all seem to be sedum, first one looks like a green rubrotinctum second might be dasyphyllum, last one might be japonicum.

The first one might be S. album. Sedum (Sedum album)

This is my guess, too. I had some until a couple weeks ago, when it died shortly after being moved (womp, womp).

It's OK. I've had a few plant disasters lately and some of them are my fault. This post reminds me that I need to get more sedums though. They're really neat little plants. lol

Sedums and succulents in general tend to do that. They magically holler at their brethren, sistren, and cousren, "Y'all! Come here! I need company!"

We don't even realize it, but we actually do their bidding for them. I think they grow us.

Hi @lilyhxk
I agree, the first one is Sedum album, second one is S. dasyphyllum and the last looks to be Sedum japonicum 'Tokyo Sun'.
The last one is a most lovely plant but is not hardy in my zone 8 garden.

Sedum album is a very tough plant here at my place. It is even growing on a cement bridge in the back yard.
