This plant is very short rooted, starts blooming green and then turns black.

    Its some sort of succulent. Those are the leaves, not the blossoms. Very neat-looking. I wish I could help more.

    Commonly called “Hen and chicks” but what you are seeing there is not the bloom. They may bloom later in the year, on a very long spike.

    There are a number of varieties of this. See:

    It looks like a Sedum of some kind.
