Those are the Aeonium talked about above. They are succulents and a beautiful contrast to the Arbutus (Strawberry Tree) behind them.

that's try to make contrast of the regular one and also try to create a vivid pavement effect.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Danyelle Mathews added this to Succulents Juice Up Outdoor Gardens
If you have a small bed in your garden, consider filling it with a propagating succulent variety such as hen and chicks.
Frank Organ added this to Unsung Garden Hero: Fantastic Foliage
Mass planting. I really love the use of these succulents. The shiny surface of the foliage brings yet another dimension to this evergreen planting. With just one species we can see the intricate differences in foliage color from deep cabbage green to the delicious pink-tinged edging.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Unwind in Your Own Private Garden Escape
Similarly, the designer of this space significantly limited the color palette and even the plant shapes to give prominence to texture. You don't need a large space to pull this off; you could easily re-create the look on an apartment balcony.
