There is a local deli/pub in McDonough that has agreed to let me spruce up their "beer garden". Currently there are 2 large wine barrel type planters (with dead plants in them). I would like to plant some easy care plants that would last through the fall, or longer. Ideas? The planters are in full sun, Zone 7b, hot & dry. I was thinking sedum, but that may attract bees, which might not be the best idea around food & drink. Since they let the other plants die, I'm thinking drought tolerant would be a good idea. There is an entryway that would support climbers also. Any opinions and advice is welcome!

How about succulent garden? So many colors, textures, and all are tolerant of heat, sun, dry weather.
