Looks like some sort of Sedum.

Yeah, it is a Sedum of sorts, I think it's Dragon's Blood Stonecrop (Sedium spurium 'Dragon's Blood'). That's what mine is, but it could be a few different ones...there are so many.

It's a hylotelephium, formerly called sedum. Might be this one:

yes a Sedum called Dragon's Blood... the more sun it gets the darker red it gets. needs very little water and will become a solid mat ground cover.. and choke out most weeds over time.
I love it. Low maintenance.
