    I'd be happy to help. The tall grasses towards the top of the staircase are Miscanthus species. Below them to the right is a salvia leucantha and a pennisetum grass. The orange plant below the pennisetum is a phygelius and below that are the David Austin hybrid roses.
    On the opposite side , starting next to the lawn and moving up the stairs is the blue blooming Nepeta, then the silvery lavender. Above that is a mass of salvia leucantha and echium fastuosum, Growing out from that mass is a pomegranate tree. The strong silver plan is a helichrysum. - A fairly basic Mediterranean plant palette was used. Happy Gardening !
