Rhoeo needs well-drained, dry soil and can develop rot rot in wet soil, so make sure you can provide an appropriate site for it. A good companion would be any plant that also enjoys low moisture conditions. See this article:

The most important aspect of preparing the bed for Rhoeo is to improve the soil drainage if necessary:
