    Agaves in the front and Viburnum tinus hedging to the back. A great combination in this situation.

    I believe it is Agave attenuata

Gray and other neutral colors tone down adjacent colors, and they also create buffers between neighboring colors that might otherwise have a tendency to clash. This gray retaining wall separates the gray-hued agave and bright green Laurustinus (Viburnum tinus) while complementing both. Gray-leaved evergreens, such as daisy bush (Brachyglottis greyi), lavender cotton (Santolina chamaecyparissus), lavender (Lavendula spp) and silverbush (Convolvulus cneorum) are perfect plant buffers.

2. Mix foliage texture. Notice here how the designer contrasted the texture of the different foliage — the matte spikiness of the agave against the shiny gloss of the Laurustinus (Viburnum tinus).A monochromatic green planting fits contemporary gardens perfectly. The neutral nature of the color does not detract from the design or the hard landscaping material.More tips on mixing foliage texture
