Yes my mistake, the red plant in the front is Japanese Blood Grass. It can be invasive so use it carefully.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Japanese blood grass is perfect as a front of the border edging plant. It keeps a uniform size and shape, reaching about 18 inches tall.
Color. This abundant border is defined by colorful plants, from the Japanese blood grass in the foreground to the rhubarb-red Sedum 'Autumn Joy' in the back of the border. This palette enlivens nearby plants and demands attention. When used with confidence, color can create important focal points in the landscape. It can signal where to enter and how to proceed; it also draws the eye and invites exploration. Successful use of color is often restrained, limited to a narrow but powerful palette, which is exactly what you see in this design.

Wil­low Glen De­sign It's hard to tell from the picture but it looks like, the Purple plant in the back is a Buddleja, the flat pink flowers in the front on the left are Pink Yarrow, the plants in the very front are Cordyline, I can't tell what type of grass is in the back.
