That is a papyrus plant. It does like plenty of water, so place it as an accent and near other plants that can tolerate the same moisture levels.

We didn't paint the house so I am unable to help here. Additionally, that could be colored stucco and not even paint.

Appears to be Terra Cotta - I'd start by taking a trip to your local garden supply center (not a national chain) and let them know what you're looking for.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A single large-scale object always makes a bigger splash than a cluster of small objects. That's obvious here, where the saucer-shape water feature dominates (but doesn't overwhelm) this Spanish-style courtyard. Its dimensions are practically the same as the arches across the loggia, unifying the water feature with its surroundings.
