Let's talk drought tolerance.  This is one step up from cactus.  We always marvel at this growing out of cracks in sheer basalt cliffs on the dry Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge and looking oh so good despite the most rigorous of conditions.  Great for the rock garden.  Good drainage.  Purple-pink flowers on this evergreen subshrub.
