Sounds pretty as long as your climate will support them. I know that mine wouldn't, for mine I'd go with low growing trees and flowering shrubs for the back and some perennials for the front.
All cacti and succulents will flower depends on amount of sun and water. There are so many varieties to choose from you need to google Cacti and read the specifications/ mature growth & it will tell you what you should consider. Where do you live? Google Cacti nurseries in your area and go there to see them ask for mature plants to see what they look like and how big they will get. Google the ones you think you are interested in & type in flowering to see what color they will produce. You'll want pipe type cacti in back,then prickly pear(can keep cut back so they don't get huge)and barrel type in front. Add some Ocotillo(great for pollinators/hummingbirds)in far back/tallest.Some are night blooming for nighttime pollinators. Stay away from any of the Cholla type cacti(Jumping cacti) Do the same with the succulents(there are hundreds of varieties of these too) type in colorful succulents to get started. Here's a site to buy the succulents https://mountaincrestgardens.com/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIz4LEwZnc3wIVFRx9Ch1AVQTUEAMYASAAEgIQRvD_BwE It'll be beautiful & remember they need really good drainage & really dry between a good soaking but they all need water cacti & succulents both.

The area receives full sun all day? Purchasing cactus and succulents could get rather pricey to fill that area. What about perennial shrubs instead?
