The first thing I thought of when I saw this is Sedum. Then I went and looked round mine and found nothing similar. Then I wondered if it could be Aeonium sedifolium, that has small leaves in rosettes that make a clump. If it is, it is best grown in very good sunlight so that it develops the red tannic stripes that makes this plant looks so attractive. This is a picture of mine.

The leaves look to be in whorls of 4, which fits with Sedum better then Aeonium. Sedum album can look similar to this if growing in shade. One of the annual Sedums is another possibility. I think you need to wait for flowers, the post another photo.
