Those are Lavender - probably Grosso or Provence, with Penstemon behind the wall.

The mulch in this photo was probably shredded redwood or cedar, but may have been fir bark. It does not stop weeds but helps in their control. We don't prefer the weedblock fabric, but typically the gardeners hand-pull or spot spray deep rooted weeds with a Round-up type spray (glyphosate). If you spray its good to have a second sprayer of pure water to wash off any accidental overspray that gets on desired plants. For crushed rock areas, if you install 3" thick and compact, you usually have very few weeds.

Would be more striking if you plant them closer together and pair them with something else, like river rock. Looks too uniform.

Those are young lavender. They have since filled in completely at that spacing to the point of seasonally obscuring the wall.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Massing LavenderFor a mass of lavender against a stone wall or fence, plant en masse, leaving room between for the shrubby flowers to grow. You'll have to deal with clumps of lavender for a few years until they fill out and create the mass you are looking for.
Light requirement: Full sun Water requirement: Regular to establish, then minimal Prime growing season: Spring to summerWhen to plant: Spring through fall, except during the hottest summer days
