What zone is this garden in? (And I am also waiting to find out which plants were used as already asked
think the white flowers in front are annual vinca (Catharanthus roseus), sometimes called Madagascar periwinkle. The purple spikes look to be annual salvia 'Victoria', and the tall orange flowers I think are annual Mexican Sunflower. All thrive in full sun.

The bluestone patio was screened from the neighbors with a wall of arborvitae. Lush perennial gardens provide flower cutting opportunities and color to offset the green wall.
What type if flowers were used in the flower beds? Are those purple ball type flowers butterfly bushes? I love the color contrast that was used.
Thanks for the question! The purple globes in the foreground are Allium 'Gladiator' (ornamental onion), the pink flowers are Knockout Roses - pink and blush, and the purple spikes are Nepeta racemosa 'Walker's Low' (catmint). Thank you for the complement as well.
It definitely helps that we get a lot of rain, you probably couldn't have a garden like this in an arid area, even with irrigation.
