Looks like African Butterfly Iris in the tubs. In Southern CA they are evergreen and drought tolerant.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Container Garden Inspiration
These are inexpensive paint tins from the hardware store. When lined up in a row and filled with the same plant, it gives the garden modern lines and structure.

5. Use plants at the edge of the deck, either inside or outside the railing. I also suggested to Chanellem that the railing over the garage could be pushed in a few feet, allowing for a spot for planters with vertical plants, such as ornamental grasses.
Debra Prinzing added this to Privacy Screening Made Pretty
Here's another affordable, easy-to-create solution when you need to divide or enclose a garden space. Check it out: The planters are actually galvanized tubs, the type you can find at the hardware or farm supply store. Punch drainage holes in the bottom of each tub, line them up in a row and plant each with something uniform and tall. Any grasslike plant will do. When or if you have to move, you can take this green screen with you.
