The shrub center left in front of the wall is a Tree Peony.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to 4 Steps to the Perfect Garden
Adding a focal point at the end of your garden will automatically draw the eye in that direction, visually lengthening the space. Interchanging a section of the fence with this stone wall and bright shutters provides a functional focal point. The windows in the wall let light in, making sure that the wall doesn't completely block the view beyond. A fountain, urn, or statuette at the end of a garden would serve a similar use.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: English-Style Gardens
You can also create your own ruins. A slightly crumbling wall (designed with safety in mind) can add dimension without overwhelming the space. In this case, it also serves as a backdrop for a "secret" garden — and what could be more English-inspired than that?
2. Outdoor windows. Like hidden ruins stumbled upon on a walk in the woods, a garden wall complete with windows makes a striking garden feature. It also provides an excellent wind block, making it a great place for a sitting area.
