Notes:

This seems to be popular around businesses in WV. What is it? What are the characteristics? Does it keep its foliage all year? Is it deer-resistant?

    This looks similar to the shrub I just posted – “ROUNDED SHRUB IN SENOIA, GA”. I think it may be some type of spirea, but it isn’t one of the newer species.

    I can’t see the leaves position clearly & there are no flowers to be certain. They appear to be alternate, I’m guessing maybe a cultivar in the Japanese spirea (Spirea japonica)? According to source, it’s deer resistant. Spirea is deciduous and looses its leaves in the winter. If this is spirea, check out the included link below for one of the cultivar in the group ‘Anthony Waterer. Flowers are needed for a confirmed ID.
