    The first pink perennial was spotted near UBC, NW Marine Drive. The second, sedum-looking one was seen on the Sunshine Coast.

    I'd say it's more than sedum-looking.

    So nobody can confidently ID this one? I tried to find a "Sempervivum" in Pojar and Mackinnon's "Plants of Coastal BC" but there wasn't an entry for it. I would be surprised to learn it is a non-native, since I found it on a cliff face, growing with Sedum oreganum, and could not see any other non-natives around it....

    You might have misunderstood Ron's post above -- he said it was a Sedum, but with a few more words.

    Sedum lanceolatum, for comparison.
