Foliage garden

I'd like to make a garden without flowers in the back yard over rocky/soil area. can you give suggestions on plant combination? i don't like any vines/crawlers or big trees. i prefer the upright plants but not too tall/swaying branches; also love the leaves with bright colors or combination of colors. thanks so much.

You don't indicate your growing Zone or the exposure of your site (sun/shade). I'm assuming that since it is a rocky site, that it is well-drained and perhaps dries out easily. In order to make meaningful suggestions for plant combinations, we would need more detailed information.
