bali in burraneer

A bold vibrant planting scheme design was adopted to give the property a resort style feel, and an almost prehistoric horticultural journey of depth, texture and colour.

The purple plants are elephant ears also, like the ones next to the porch, only the black variety.

I thinkk these are bulb plants they will die down and then come back. Just when they get raggedy looking cut them down to the ground and they will come back next year.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Tropical Garden Style
Big and bold is the norm for leaves. This is not Grandma's garden, unless of course Grandma lived in Bali. The leaves of tropical plants grow big and bold, and are known for their rich colors and distinctive shapes. Design tip: Finding similar plants for cooler climates may be easier than you think. There are hardy bananas (Musa sp.) available, and elephant's ear or taro (Colcasia esculenta) can be grown as an annual.
J. Peterson Garden Design added this to Texas Gardener's March Checklist
Plant bulbs, trees and shrubs. There is still time to plant trees and shrubs as long as the weather is not too warm, so aim for earlier in the month if this is on your to-do list. These larger landscape plants can, theoretically, be planted during warmer months, but you will have to tend to them much more closely as they acclimate. Bulbs like elephant's ear, cannas, caladiums, daylilies and irises can be planted now for lush summer foliage.
Elephant Ear(Alocasia, Colocasia spp) If you're going for a lush and tropical look, grow one of the large-leaved arum relatives known as elephant ear. Think of them as caladiums on steroids, with the heart-shaped leaves on large varieties such as 'Borneo Giant' (Alocasia 'Borneo Giant', zones 9 to 11) reaching up to 12 feet tall. Most varieties are more modest — at least regarding their size — but they make up for it with eye-popping colors like the bright, dappled lime-green leaves of 'Mojito' (Colocasia 'Mojito', zones 7 to 11) or the nearly black ones of Black Magic (Colocasia 'Black Magic', zones 7 to 11).USDA zones: 7 to 11 (find your zone)Water and soil requirements: Tolerant of drought and standing water; thrives in rich soil with ample moistureLight requirement: Full shade to full sunMature size: 2 to 12 feet tallBloom time: Spring through summerPlanting tips: Give elephant ears plenty of space. Those in the Southeast United States should avoid planting any elephant ear growing in a drainage ditch, as it is likely the invasive Colocasia aquatica and will take over your garden.
6. TropicalLet lush plantings speak for themselves with minimal furniture that can be easily moved under an awning during an afternoon thunderstorm. Nestle Asian-inspired stone figures into the greenery to create a Balinese vibe.
