Can someone tell me the names of plants in this arrangement?

I can't tell the specific varieties, but looks like a hot pink Coreopsis (perennial), yellow/pink dahila (tender bulb), rust-leafed coleus (annual), white-edged Euonymous (shrubby groundcover), and the silver trailing plant could be an artemesia (perennial).

The specific variety of the coleus is 'Sedona' and I believe the trailing silver plant is Lotus maculatus (common name Lotus vine or Parrots Beak) It can have orange or red flowers.

Here's a link for more info on the lotus vine http://www.portkellsnurseries.com/plantdb.php?id=1556

I hope this helps!

Similarly, this container garden looks stunning against the color of the house siding. Notice the small pot of lime-toned succulents?
Debra Prinzing added this to Garden Design Essentials: Color
Tell Your Own Color Story Define your garden with massed plantings of a favorite perennial to echo colors that appear elsewhere (both in your own garden and from borrowed views). You can keep the color palette more intense in certain spots, allowing dominant shades to define a focal point or announce a transition area in the landscape. Muted tones help the eye move calmly between the bolder elements, providing a restful visual pause. This container is a study in complements, with a cinnamon-color coleus and peach dahlia occupying the warm end of the spectrum and the turquoise glazed pot and trailing foliage providing the cooler notes on the scale.
Genevieve Schmidt added this to Pacific Northwest Gardener: What to Do in July
Deadhead dahlias as each bloom finishes. Dahlias are one of the most profusely flowering plants in the garden, but in order to keep them going for a long season, it's critical to remove spent flowers regularly. Just like with roses, by taking off the old blooms you send a signal to the plant that the season is not yet over. To deadhead, just trim each spent flower back to the main stem. When all of the flowers on a stem have finished, cut the stem back to a set of leaves so the dahlia will continue putting out fresh, new growth.
Jocelyn H. Chilvers added this to Rocky Mountain Gardener's November Checklist
Winterize pots. Empty all containers of annual flowers and veggies. Remove the soil, or the top 8 to 10 inches from large pots. Spent soil and nondiseased foliage can go straight to the compost pile. I wait until the warmer days of spring to wash my pots before replanting them. Find a dry, sheltered place to store your pots to protect them from months of freeze-thaw cycles. My storage area is the back corner of a covered patio; a shed or garage would also do the trick. I have also had luck leaving large, glazed pots right out in the garden, turned upside down and resting on a couple of scrap 2-by-4s.
Le jardinet added this to Monochromatic Garden Magic Done 7 Ways
Sunset ShadesFrom peach to rust and magenta, this color palette offers warm shades that look like they would melt in your mouth. Cluster sun-loving 'Sedona' coleus, dahlias and other similarly colored annuals in a sunny container for an easy monochromatic medley.
Once you have your foliage texture sorted, you can look to all of the other sources of texture for your garden: flowers, bark, fruit, seeds etc. Have fun!More: Guides to growing great foliage plants
Annie Thornton added this to Your November Garden Checklist
Rocky Mountains. It's time to winterize potted plants. "Empty all containers of annual flowers and veggies," writes Colorado landscape designer Jocelyn Chilvers. "Remove the soil, or the top 8 to 10 inches from large pots. Spent soil and nondiseased foliage can go straight to the compost pile. I wait until the warmer days of spring to wash my pots before replanting them."During the winter months, "find a dry, sheltered place to store your pots to protect them from months of freeze-thaw cycles. My storage area is the back corner of a covered patio; a shed or garage would also do the trick. I have also had luck leaving large, glazed pots right out in the garden, turned upside down and resting on a couple of scrap 2-by-4s," Chilvers writes.Get her Rocky Mountains November checklist
Finish With Seasonal Container PlantingsOne of the easiest ways to create that home-garden connection is to purchase complementary ceramic pottery and plant seasonally with annuals. Notice how this blue ceramic piece blends tastefully with the gray house siding. The blue is both reinforced with blue foliage and contrasted by a complementary orange Sedona coleus (Solenostemon scutellarioides ‘Sedona’, zone 11).More: How to Make Your Brick House Feel at Home in the LandscapeHow to Make Your Stone House Feel at Home in the Landscape
