They kind of look like apricot to me, but I can't be sure.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Cassy Aoyagi, FormLA Landscaping added this to Steeply Beautiful Slope Retention
Foliage is also an incredibly beautiful and effective method for retaining slopes. It's important to understand the root structures and water needs of the plants used. If a plant requires lots of water to thrive in your climate, the application of the water might undermine your goal of slope retention.
