Help placing drought tolerant plants
I have a few lavender plants, rosemary, a few sages (common, variegated, and purple), oregano, thyme, creeping phlox, and a few short sedums. I need help figuring out which bed to put them in. I'd like to know which plants LIKE being dry, and which plants don't mind water, but will tolerate some drought. I know that those plants listed dislike wet feet, so I know I'm taking something of a chance in the back bed.
One bed (the front bed, 18" wide x 5-6' long) gets very very little rain all year, because it's under an overhang. I don't mind watering it once a month or so in the fall, winter, and spring. In the summer, I can water much more often, because I like being outside in the summer.
The second bed, (the back bed, a triangle 4' w x 8' long) gets rain on the front half, and the back half stays pretty dry. I'm in Vancouver, so it's constant rain in fall, winter, and spring, and very little in summer. The soil is very well draining, and water never puddles in it. It stays damp during the rainy season. Which plants would do ok in the front of the bed, where they get more water, and which would be better in the back? Again, I could make sure they get water once a month, if necessary.
Both get direct sun, not quite "full sun" but close enough that I'm willing to try the plants there.
