Without being able to zoom in it looks like Salvia, which flowers either purple or white. That's my guess:)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to The Comfy Lake House Rule Book
Lake House Rule No. 10: Keep your landscape low-maintenance. Rock gardens, herbs, woods and mulch make for easy-to-care-for camp surroundings. You don't want to spend your valuable weekend lake hours mowing and weeding.
"We wanted it to look like it had happened organically, and we wanted to deemphasize how big the house was by breaking down the massing," Pylant explains. "It's not a big plateau house; it's a rambling farmhouse."
