Perennial small shrub. Has beautiful pink colored flowers resembling a butterfly bush. Blooming now (June). Has tendency to sucker. Very, very hardy. Comes back with little care. Is located in a demonstration garden and nobody seems to know what it is called. Thanks.

    I’ve been waiting for the powers that be to expound upon this beauty. Oh where, oh where have they gone? We haven’t a clue. It’s all up to you. Check this one out Walter! Come on.

    Yes, I think Shannon nailed this. It sure looks like Douglas spirea to me too. I will make a label for the garden. The spirea is located in a county demo garden and I had folks asking me what it was.

    Thanks to all who worked on this question. I appreciate it!

    Thanks Walter and Shannon! I’ll be looking for a Douglas Spirea to set out. Any ideas on where one could be found other than a Carroll County demo garden!
