I have Ajuga growing beneath my Yucca - never know that purple creeper will show up.   I have tried transplanting to places I would prefer it to grow - but never know if it will be there next year.

Purple Sedumm - love the colorful foliage too. For some reason this variety is lazy - it doesn't form and nice upright clump - just falls away from the center.  Maybe it needs to be planted deeper.

    Sedum is very hardy. I planted a clump by my mailbox that I never water. I just let mother nature take care of it and it has done well.
