I've seen multiple versions of these, and I think they are both fun and lovely.

This one is from Sunset Magazine - Art in a Pot:



Fashioned after Monet's Water Lilies.



According to Wikipedia,

The leaves of all stonecrops are edible.[7]



Other succulents, houseleeks (aka hens-and-chicks, or Sempervivum) I'm not sure if are also edible, though the gelatinous fluids inside I have used as an aloe vera substitute for scrapes, cuts and burns.

Fixed it - thanks Cal. There was a wayward colon gumming up the works.

I tried a leaf of a sedum yesterday. Only slightly bitter with a sort of purslane flavor. Not bad. It's a plant that's been struggling to regrow after the winter, so is likely a bit strong flavored until it gets a bit more lush.
 
Permaculture isn't that hard to understand. Sometimes a little bump helps: richsoil.com/cards
