What to mix with Dragon's blood sedum?

I want to grow Dragon's blood sedum on a grass covered slope (approx 50x8')in my front yard to eliminate mowing. I'd like suggestions on other groundcover(s) to mix in with it, so as not to have such a long stretch of single color. Very sunny area, and want to keep it low maintenance.

RE: What to mix with Dragon's blood sedum?

I seem to recommend these a lot (too much?) to others, but I like them because they are low-growing, vigorous, drought-tolerant, with interesting flowers (one yellow, one white), and contrasting foliage (I also have some patches of these interplanted with some Sedum, but not Dragon's Blood):

Fragaria chiloensis
Potentilla neumanniana
