Beverly Hills Front Yard Garden Driveway

I have a fondness for burgundy foliage. These smokey maroon taro leaves are called Black Magic. There was just this small grassy area and a fountain in front of the house along the circle drive that was visible through the brick walls. I don't believe they have a problem with deer or meandering sheep like we do...nor chickens who like to dig as much as our westie dog. Notice how it's all about foliage and not flowers? Other favorites are Chinese fringe flower, smokebush, Concord berberis, ninebark, cannas, bamboos, and the list goes on and on. What are your favorite garden maroons?
