Hi

I am hoping that someone will be able to identify this plant. I noticed it growing in an old tarmac driveways that is now more like a gravel bed. I transplanted it into an old breezeblock and its really taken off. I am no gardening expert and have no idea if its a plant or a weed. It looks nice and is thriving so eitherway it gets to keep its new home. 

Any help would be appreciated.  Many thanks.

Andy

Stonecrop

Definitely stonecrop. It should have yellow flowers, maybe in spring?

Yes, stonecrop, but yellow flowers aren't a necessity. I like it too! Fleshy leaves are an indication of storing moisture, so it grows in dry, difficult conditions.

Sedum for sure, but it may have white or pale pink flowers rather than yellow ones.

Many thanks to all who took the time to post. I am an utter garden numpty and have been watering it each day during the hot weather, any advice on how often to water  would be happily received
