Achillea Appleblossom
Just starting to open. Love this one , stays a nice size and covered with blooms. I do not see Achillea mentioned much , but I think they add nice texture and have a nice long bloom period.

They are Sedum . The one on the left was supposed to be a red color and the one on right was given to me so I do not know what varieties they are. It really holds the gold color and keeps a nice shape.

I thought so. I might be wrong but the one on the left looks like S. Matrona and the right S. Autumn Charm. Could be wrong.
The achellia looks like it is drought tolerant. Sorry back to the topic!

Love those pink blooms! I also grow Achillea..Achillea Moonshine. Drought tolerant indeed, and I like how the blooms stay long, even when it is dried out already, they still look nice..and I especially like their fern like leaves Big Grin

Very nice I should give mine some support . The Appleblossom does not need it but the Moonshine does.
