Believe it's Xanthorrhoea, native to Australia.

Where do You buy The metal fence and does it come rusted or do you have to rust it yourself? - Is that a natural rust or was something applied to the fence to give it that look?

Are the weathering steels (corten or other) not necessary for this application. How thick is this steel?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to 11 Fences to Match a Modern Mood
The Cor-Ten steel in the previous photo defined a planter bed, but in this residence it is used as the primary fencing material. Cor-Ten provides maximum privacy and contrasts strongly (yet naturally) with the grass and plantings.
Cor-Ten is a weathering steel; after being exposed to the elements, the top layer becomes a protective rust that never needs painting. It makes for a striking, low-maintenance fence.Although Cor-Ten is otherwise quite corrosion resistant, it is not completely immune to corrosion. If used near the sea in salty air or if exposed to standing water, it will continue to corrode beyond the initial rusting phase, and thus is not recommended for use under such conditions. Learn more about Cor-Ten
Benjamin Vogt / Monarch Gardens added this to How to Get Your Prairie On
You can also get really minimalist if you want. In this image various plants are spread almost like they would be in the arid high plains wild — a specimen here, a drift there. Designing a prairie garden can spur some cool creativity, and I strongly believe any aesthetic can be achieved using just prairie grasses and wildflowers.
