The genus Sedum has some amazing plants. There are tall ones, short ones, some that spread lots, some not to much. All are tolerant of the heat and drought once established. Then the plant breeders got involved and now we have even more plant habits , foliage types, colours and flower colours. Just pick your size and colour, and Sedum probably has it. It may not be hardy in this area, but many are.
'Brilliant' is a sunny garden classic with large flower heads that start like broccoli and open into mauve-pink blooms that age into rusty tones. Even the spent flowers have charm through the winter. Full sun.
Bloom time August-September
Hardiness Zone 2
