If you live in an area where water costs are high, you might consider making an "accent" garden using various sedums.

Popping in with an update!

The former unknown sedum that is now pouring out is Sedum sarmentosa. You can see how much it has grown since I planted this garden in the fall 2014!

I added a few wax begonias along the back to add some temporary color. I can enjoy this side through my kitchen window.

I'll update again when the taller sedums in the background bloom.
