It's definitely stonecrop, why'd you think it wasn't?

(Probably Sedum divergens.)

The leaves/greenery didn't seem right. Stonecrop looks like a succulent and these leaves seemed different, but they aren't very clear in the photo, so maybe my memory is off.

That is the flowering part of stonecrop. You can see the normal stonecrop "leaves" in the upper right next to that stick running vertically down the frame.

Not sure why I got confused. Thanks for responding.
