Can anyone identify the flowers shown? - this is the "look" I am wanting for a roadside berm and I want to use perennials. Hoping someone can help me out with species/variety names.

The light pink and fuchsia colored flowers in the foreground with the five petals are Vinca. These are annuals and drought tolerant. I also see some Petunias bordering the big rock. Not sure of the others though.

I think the purple are Angelonia. Behind them are probably Black Eyed Susan. Orange are Zinnia and vibrant green plant in the far right are Sweet Potato Vine. Pink

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Not only seasonal bedding plants provide these beacons of color. Here we see a colorful bed that uses herbaceous perennials to create the same effect. Perennials in red, orange, magenta and bright yellow are guaranteed to energize your garden. These bold colors always tend to steal the show, so don't try to combine bright colors with pastels.
Annie Thornton added this to Southeast Gardener's April Checklist
Plant annuals after the frost. Wait until after the last frost before planting tender annuals such as impatiens and petunias. The National Climatic Data Center can help you determine your region's last frost date.Don’t be in a rush to plant; garden centers often stock summer annuals and tender perennials well before planting time. Know when it’s safe to plant tender annuals.
