What r those red/ green plants?
With desert plants, you can go bold and raucous with greens. The design of many succulents and other desert plants is very bold, and blooms are often bright, beautiful reds, oranges and yellows. Follow suit with boldly-colored blue and deep green foliage to create strong contrasts.

Will you identify these plants for me?

Definitely not. These plants shown need dry mediterannean air, and sandy soil. There are some hardy Opuntia's and Agave's that would do well in your zone, I would research these varieties

Low Mediterranean plants, no grass or mulch in garden. Terraces are interesting but might be a little too formal.
using a variety of plants instead of colorful flowers
decorative yard with "desert" like aesthetic
add just enough masonry for a rim. then minimal mulch and plants.
Fall planting. Many plants will appreciate being transplanted in October, since mild temperatures and still-warm soils permit optimal plant growth. In the middle and high zones, wait until spring to plant heat-loving to tender perennials, like Lantana and some broad-leaved evergreen trees and shrubs

7. Desert plants don't need water. A variation of this is, "I want a no-maintenance garden." Here's the truth: Even desert plants need water, and there is no such thing as a no-maintenance garden. Plants are living things, and even if a plant such as an agave requires much less water than, say, impatiens
impatiens, it still needs water, particularly in the first weeks after planting or during an extended drought. So if you're a person who doesn't want to be a slave to your garden, alter your thinking from "no maintenance" to "low maintenance."More: What to Do in Your Garden Now
