I possibly want to use one of the plants instead of holly bushes for shrubbery.
Big leaves/red balls is castor bean. check my website notes about cautions around children.
Purple plant is Persian shield (Strobilanthes…)
The top photo is a castorbean plant.
Here is Walters comment on the castorbean plant
I am not sure what the purple leaf plant is. Do you really hate your holly plants that bad?
