Hmm. That's a lot of red. The Callistemons (now in Melaleuca), the Alstroemerias, the red in the Bromeliads, and the red foliage of Acer palmatum 'Oshio Bene' just now leafing out.
There's ivory variegation in the foliage of Alstroemeria 'Rock and Roll' and Fatsia 'Spiders Web', but...there's still a lot of red. A further counter is the chartreuse of Sedum 'Angelina' and Hakonechloa macra 'All Gold'...
The Hakonechloa is under a screen because the blankety-blank rabbits love to mow the fresh new spring foliage.
...and I added a patch of chartreuse Sedum makinoi 'Ogon':
But it's still a lot of red. A lot of red can be very gloomy. Who knew?
The Callistemon/Melaleuca won't be in bloom year round, the Alstroemerias will stop flowering when summer heat hits, and the Acer foliage will be more green/bronze/red than red-red in about six weeks. Then I'll probably miss all the red.
Speaking of blankety-blank rabbits, maybe this fellow can help me:

Please please please do not kill rodents with poison bait. Use traps instead. You could poison the beautiful predators like bobcats that are efficient controllers of the rodent population.
