The blue is a perennial (I think it's some kind of salvia or sage, maybe Victoria Blue salvia aka Mealycup Sage), the rest are annuals except for the purple plant that is detailed in the above comments and identified as Setcreasea pallida 'Purple Heart' and if the yellow plants in the middle of the photo are Black Eyed Susans, they are perennials. Try Googling these plants on Dave's Plant Files or Texas A&M Extension.

The purple plant growing in front is called Wandering Jew or Purple Queen depending on where you are in the South. it's prolific throughout the summers and takes the direct hot sun very well. It dies back in the winter but will always come back. It's also very easy to transplant. You can snap off a section and plant it directly into the ground. It is drought tolerant, and I find it grows better in well drained soil.

May I use your image? - Hi there I am a designer/Houzz writer/speaker and am currently preparing a seminar for the upcoming Northwest Flower & Garden Show, Seattle. Would you be willing to let me use this image as part of my talk? I'd need a full size but 96dpi is fine. If so please email me at karen@lejardinetdesigns.com. I may try and reach you via your website also - many thanks!

Plant question - what plants were used in the beautiful planter. are you full sun or partial sun plants
   Comment   March 24, 2012

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Plants that enjoy sunny situations are perfect to use in a Matisse-inspired garden masterpiece, as they tend to have brightly colored flowers; pastels in bright sunlight can appear faded and washed out. Reds, oranges, bright yellows, deep blues and purples in swaths and blocks of contrasted color put the same sort of energy into a planting that Matisse put into his paintings.
LuAnn Brandsen added this to Garden Color: How to Landscape With Purple
5. Don't Forget FoliageDark purple foliage makes an excellent accent. Consider ground covers, such as setcreasea purpurea, for a swath of purple in a garden bed.
Be bold with your seasonal planting. Perhaps the easiest way to try out bold, baroque planting schemes is to start with a seasonal planting using the bright colors of annuals and half-hardy annuals.The purple edging of the purple heart (Setcreasea purpurea) in this planting gives a depth to the bright colors of the deep red salvia, golden zinnia and bright yellow rudebeckia.

Design Element Colour is what catches your eye on an image because of thediffering wavelengths of radiation within the visible image. An example is the bright colour of blue in the sky compared to when it’s cloudy. Brighter colours attract our eye to a specific part of the image. The flowers in this image have bright attractive colours that catchg our eye before we look at anything else.
