Give plants a good startNo matter how tough and drought-resistant a plant is when mature, it still needs to be pampered a little when it’s first planted. Trees in particular. Dig some organic manure or peat and slow-release fertiliser into the soil when planting and water
Continue to water for the first growing season until the plant is properly established, then it can be left to fend for itself.Try to do your planting between late autumn and early spring when the ground is likely to be moister.Trees for dry conditions, once established, include alder, banksia (pictured

Can someone tell me the names of plants in this arrangement?
Does anyone know what the lower trailing, greyish plant that goes to the ground is?
(shrubby groundcover), and the silver trailing plant could be an artemesia (perennial).
Looking at the tiny picture on my phone I am going to say its some silver mound artemesia trailing out of that pot. Silver mound gets a little leggy in the shade, which looks to be the case here.
The specific variety of the coleus is 'Sedona' and I believe the trailing silver plant is Lotus maculatus (common name Lotus vine or Parrots Beak) It can have orange or red flowers. Here's a link for more info on the lotus vine http://www.portkellsnurseries.com/plantdb.php?id=1556 I hope this helps

What plants are used? What is the name of those used and what climate do they grow in?
I, too, would like to zones/climate in which these plants can be grown. Thank you.
Where can I get some of the red and green plants? What are they're names?
@ Debora Carl: Thank you for sharing all the plant names. It's truly is a show stopper. Brilliant composition!!!
This is absolutely beautiful. I'm in Chattanooga TN so don't know how well the Paddle Plant would do here, but I'm in love with all of them. I have several succulents
These are Kalanchoe luciae - Paddle Plant. If you live in an area where temperature does not get below 25-30F too often, you should be able to find it at local nurseries.
could you please name the plants in this picture. Truly amazing

street, a blank palette as it were. Re purposed concrete was used to create an entrance way and a seating area. Colorful drought tolerant trees and plants were used strategically to screen out unwanted views, and to frame the beauty of the new landscape. This yard is an example of low water, low maintenance
What are the plants in this photo and how drought resistant are they?
you crave even during an especially dry season.
spanish lavender, blood grass and kangaroo paw for dry seasons
spanish lavender good for dry season and color
Plant groupings, gravel rather than turf
Certain places drought tolerant plants could go - looks like wildflower garden
Water regularly during the first year to establish the plants; in subsequent years let the plants dry out completely before watering again. Add a light fertilizer in spring when growth starts.
