The trailing plant is Helianthemum 'Cheviot' (perennial), the orange foliage is a coleus (annual)...possibly 'Sedona', The spiky plant in the middle is a burgundy coloured Dracena (Cordyline australis), bronze leaf begonia at the front, Taller burgundy leaved plant behind orange coleus is possible Physocarpus opulifolius 'Diablo' ?(Common name ninebark). The physocarpus is really a deciduous shrub but garden designers use it quite often in containers for great looking foliage. It does bloom as well. I hope this helps!

At the back of the container, the toothy-leaved holly osmanthus (Osmanthus heterophyllus, zones 7 to 9) and clump of chartreuse coral bells (Heuchera sp.), now blooming pale pink, most likely remain in the container year-round to provide foliage interest. In spring, the addition of a pink bedding hydrangea and trailing white bacopa will add color throughout summer (as pictured here).
