Google cannot help me it would seem. This plant has sparsely hairy leaves, unless Iím looking at two separate plants, may be a weed?

The plant that is flowering is a sedum variety.

Hylotelephium sp.

Thank you so much!

Perhaps the Stonecrop Neon is a newer hybrid Sedum that covers itself with bright purplish-pink flowers on plants about 18 inches tall. (Sedum spectabile). On sale now at American Meadows.

I think you are all correct. A flowering sedum, yes annc2.
Hylotelephium spectabile syn Sedum spectabile.

San Francisco, CA

Sedums and Hylotelephiums are not closely related. This is a Hylotelephium. It is grossly incorrect to call them Sedums. You might be closer to call them a Sempervivum or an Aeonium. Itís like calling a horse a cow.

Well, all I can say is the Catalogue of Life (which Plantfiles now goes by) lists them as synonyms.
Hylotelephium spectabile syn Sedum spectabile.

I forgot to add a picture that looks like yours.
Maybe yours is Sedum spectabile 'Autumn Joy' as I have seen it in darker pink colors.

Yours looks like it could be slightly variegated or perhaps just a bit stressed.

Zilyzily, stop it.

Stop what?

The variegated, hairy plant in question looks like Pulmonaria - lungwort.
