What temperatures does this plants need? Can they survive with little frost in winter?

Best to consult your local nursery or Sunset Western Garden Book's zones for your area.

The above photo is our Client's project which is located in Southern California. The grass does quite well here and all other SoCal properties where we've occasionally used over many years.

Sorry… I do not have record of the wall color. This was painted over smooth trowelled stucco.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Pattern in a contemporary garden doesn't always have to be achieved by hardscaping. This superb glaucous planting scheme fills the space with pattern and texture. The rhythmic, linear planting puts movement into the design and emphasizes the pattern clearly.
Using the same idea, but on a smaller scale, this simple three-plant combination has enough textural contrast to stand out at a distance, while featuring a monochromatic foliage palette to prevent it from overwhelming when viewed up close.

Magestic furcraea macdougalli lines the wall to anchor this blue Southern California garden. Festuca glauca (shown in the foreground) quickly grows big and bushy, adding a beachy feel to an otherwise desert garden.More: Get Along With Less Lawn — Ideas to Save Water and Effort
