That is an ornamental oregano and the orange flowers belong to a Zauschneria.

Thank you! Is it a specific oregano variety? I love how long the racemes are.

That is a Castor Bean, Ricinus communis 'Carmelita'. It is poisonous, beautiful and can tolerate full sun.

My mistake--- that is a castor bean. The aralia does have a similar shaped leaf and may be a nice alternative...

What Houzz contributors are saying:

DoorstepsThe area between private and public spaces in houses where there is no real front garden can be a lost space. It has utilitarian requirements, such as safe access to the front door for deliveries and keeping free of cover for security. But we can claim this space and use it far more constructively than just keeping it tidy with a tired, stuck-in-a-rut look. These concrete steps and walls could overpower and dominate the entrance, but a clever use of planting not only softens the hardscape, but also creates a garden in its own right, with its own style and atmosphere.
