I was given this plant which is overwhelming some bronze sedum. Can you give it a name? thank you.

The wide leafed plant is a volunteer came up in my peas. It does not look like anything I have ever planted, although the leaves resemble some much smaller coleus. It survived a light frost that blackened some volunteer potatoes. See the picture in Picasa.

I'd say Sedum acre.

RE: identify (?)euphorbia (sedum?)

Thanks. It does look like the S. acre, but it has lance-shaped leaves that are uncommon on sedum.

It is Sedum sarmentosum. It gets confused/misidentified with Sedum acre a lot. They are both ground covers with yellow flowers. Sedum acre's leaves are much smaller and closer together. Sedum sarmentosum is still relatively small but the leaves are lance shaped and there's a bit more spacing between them.
Here's a close up of my Sedum sarmentosum.
