Live Forever plant

I have brown a little patch of these flowers for years after getting a cutting from someone's garden. They are perennial and I just found out they are also a prized spring salad edible. from the net...
Orpine (sedum purpureum) is a wonderful, tasty wild plant that is also grown in gardens and as an ornamental plant. If you are lucky enough to find it growing wild and in abundance, you'll have found one of my favorite salad greens. At least the young and tender leaves are great in salads or raw as a trail nibble. But you can also boil the older leaves for 5 to 10 minutes, and its tubers are edible as well, cooked for 20 minutes or so.
