The purple looks like it might be catmint, but you could also achieve that effect with russian sage. The light pink flowers on the edge are dianthus, and I agree with Helen that the dark pink looks like thrift. The really dark deep pink flowers a little further back are peonies

Hi Folks, the plant with the large purple spikes spilling into the path is Catmint, Nepata 'Walker's Low' the hot pink globes in the lower left corner are Armeria maritima and the lighter pink is Dianthus, though I can't remember the variety. The white and deep red in the background are peonies.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

LuAnn Brandsen added this to Pathway Plantings That Please the Senses
2. SpillersGive a straight walkway graceful curves by planting perennials that gently tiptoe onto the surface. Here, catmint sprawls at regular intervals to create a sense of rhythm and repetition.
Magenta plays off of bright purple and bright pink very well. A mix of the two hues, magenta can weave in between them and bring them into harmony. Throw in a dash of light blush pink and you have the perfect cottage garden.
4. The Softened Straight PathStraight paths can easily look like a runway, suggesting a fast entry and exit with no reason to linger. To create the illusion of curves, repeat a key plant. Purple catmint (Nepeta sp) and pink dianthus (Dianthus sp) have been used in this photograph on alternating sides of the path.As these mounds spill onto the flagstone, the straight lines become partially obscured, while the eye is naturally drawn from one purple haze to the next, all the way to the renovated barn. Who wouldn't want to linger on such a delightfully fragrant journey?
