|That would be zone 9b, I think. Try a native succulent of the region like Dudleya brittonii (from Baja California), or various other Dudleyas from California.
There's a coastal agave from SoCal and BC which might also work for you.
Also consider various other agaves (choose placement carefully due to spines).
There's a variety of aloes which might also work. Including trees
and other plants.
For help sorting out the cold tolerance of aloes, consult this handy list.

|Rio Vista is pretty warm; it won't be hard to find winter hardy plants. My concern would be finding xeriscape plants for an area that gets on average 20 or more inches of rain each year.
I would look at Junipers or bunch grasses.
