So a couple days ago my best friend text me and she showed me ALL of these succulents naturally growing on her parents property. They are beautiful, and I am probably wrong, but they look like some type of Sedum(?). Her parents live 15 minutes North of me and that is in Pollock Pines, CA.

She's grabbing all of these. She also said that they are extremely dry tolerant, because the soil basically crumbled when she touched it. I think there are two types of succulents in the middle photo.

Is the blue object a soda straw? Trying to get a sense of scale to compare various species. Does your friend remember what color the blooms are?

I am not sure what that blue thing is but its likely a straw yes. I should be getting these tonight (crossing my fingers). There was no blooms, she only discovered these a few days ago. It looks like Sedum Album and if they are, they probably bloom white flowers on stems.
