Thank you for your interest! Aside from the the potato vine, the darker green is catmint, the red plants are coleus and the grasses are purple fountain grass.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Frank Organ added this to Unsung Garden Hero: Fantastic Foliage
Brilliant color. Few plants have such brilliant foliage color as the Coleus blumei shown in this border. For those in temperate climes, they are generally used as a seasonal bedding or accent plant, grown from seed each spring or overwintered as plants in a greenhouse.
That same lime green can really liven up an evergreen bed and soften the edges of your hardscaping.

The shapes and color of leaves provide much interest. In fact, the shapes of leaves can almost be as varied as the shapes of flowers. While foliage is seldom bright (there are colorful exceptions, of course), it can create a satisfying and sustaining landscape.
