Stonecrop | Sedum 'Autumn Joy'

Doesn't it look great next to the burgundy Oxalis?
Autumn Joy Sedum, Flower color: Pink to red, Crassulaceae Family (stonecrops), Xeriscape Plant.
In my garden this is a perennial. My neighbor gave me a cutting and I have planted it in an old copper boiler. This year I tried adding curly purple basil for contrast and behind the boiler I have Mexican Sage which has gray foliage with a  lilac shaded spiky flower and the height to rise above the boiler and sedum. The Mexican Sage has yet to flower and that may be due to our drought but I am anxious to  see these autumn flowering plants work together.
