    How is the root system on this tree? Will this get very big?

    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.

Lush aeonium softens a planting bed surrounded by stone walkways.Plant in beds that don’t have an irrigation system. Planting areas without an irrigation system don’t have to be left empty. Add succulents for a welcome splash of green color, and water infrequently when the top couple of inches of soil are dry.

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.

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.

If you have a small bed in your garden, consider filling it with a propagating succulent variety such as hen and chicks.
