I think the combination of the bush, tree and grass sound very pretty.  SLEEP, CREEP & LEAP.Laugh

Hey Lark! Do you still have your Bloodgood? I thought they were zone 6 or greater.  I'm thinking of putting in a couple Japanese maples in my front yard.  I have a tree I want to replace with something burgundy, and I like the look of the Japanese Maple.  I was thinking either an Emperor 1 or a Sami Nagashi? I also have an area that has a few different types of evergreen and some kind of thorny bush that's almost a lime green/yellow in the spring and fall (just green in the summer).  I want to also add some burgundy/red there, and thought maybe a crimson queen would look good.  We'll see. It's either that or adding some maidengrass for some texture and skipping the red color.  I'm just nervous it's a little too cold for a Japanese maple this far north.   

Incorporating red into your garden would enliven and enrich landscapes. The funky, swirly, upright stems of bright burgundy foliage would simply be a joy for the eyes. According to some experts, a pool and landscape design require limited colour scheme for landscape to add visual appeal, especially if your home is neutral in colour.
Another attractive option is silvery moss green for a romantic look. Bright red grabs the attention and the darker shades add a layer of depth. Many experts in the pool and landscape design mention that red tulips and cyclamens are excellent early-spring choices.
Red is a warm, inviting and welcoming so use the hue to warm up modern or minimalist exteriors.
